Course Use Reminder

Over the past five days we have had many people using the
property.  Unfortunately people continue
to use the property in the wrong fashion. 
The ski trails that were groomed for use have become a walking path
which is no longer functional for skiing.

We have ample signs on the property that provide information
on how to use the property.  Please
follow the rules.  By doing so we will
allow all members to access the course for their desired activities and ensure
that the ski trails are in great condition.

Thank you,

Shawn Major, AGS 

Winter Course Use

It has been an excellent stretch of early winter weather.  With the beautiful weather we have seen an abundance of use on the golf course property.  While we are excited to offer the use of the property to members throughout the winter there are some items that we need cooperation with to ensure the impacts of winter use are minimized.  Read More>>

Weekly Course Update

The battle of the leaves has begun.  With the heavy frosts we have experienced and the time of year one of the biggest challenges the Turfcare team will have over the course of the next couple weeks will be to keep the leaves clear of all prime play areas and keeping the course playable.  We will utilize blowers each morning to clear greens, fairways and tee boxes.  We will blow all leaves to the rough where we will then mulch them down.  We will utilize some tree lines and blow the leaves back in them.Read More>>

Aeration

Please be aware that we are beginning to aerate fairways, tees, approaches and collars this week on the property.  The fairway aeration process will take the duration of the week to complete.  Please acknowledge the Turfcare operator as you are playing.  To assist us in completing this process we ask that you please move your ball or wait for them to pass while playing to keep some efficiencies in place. This is a time consuming and difficult task to complete with a full tee sheet and your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Read More>>

Weekly Course Update

If you were anywhere around the city of Winnipeg this past weekend then you know we experienced some excessive winds.  Overall the course and the trees handled the wind event relatively well.  There was three trees that we had to remove from this storm.  Left of 8B a large ash tree came down and it took some large limbs off the elm next to it.  We will have to remove the elm in fall.  There was damage to 8B green but we have patched up the worst of it and the remainder of the green will recover in the next week or two.

Weekly Course Update

A very much welcomed ¾” rainfall fell on the property this past Sunday.  This was an excellent rainfall to receive and should provide the turf with some stress relief as we make the turn into September.  This moisture should help the property rebound from a heat filled summer.Read More>>
