Construction will begin this morning on the renovation of 17 green and complex. Over the course of the next 10-14 days there will be heavy equipment travelling across 8 fairway on the cart path to deliver and remove materials from 17 green site. Please be mindful of this and watch for the equipment during your round.Read More>>
With the arrival of June we are beginning to lower heights on greens and prepare them for the summer months ahead. The goal will be to provide the membership with a similar putting experience as last season. We have completed aeration and fungicide applications to greens and they are healing nicely from this essential process. We would like to thank the membership for their cooperation and allowing us to close the course for a day to look after this process efficiently. Read More>>
We have opened 15 green for play as of this morning. The green is not perfect but it is at a point that we can provide the membership with the green site and still recover from the winter injury. Throughout the day you will see team members plugging spots to aid in the speed in which it recovers. We will apply a light sand this morning to aid in protecting the young plants and smooth the surface.Read More>>
It was a very active week for the Turfcare team as we completed many cultural tasks across the property. These critical practices will assist in setting the stage for more turf recovery and allow us to push the golf course playing conditions for the prime months of the season that are not too far ahead of us. We would like to thank the membership for their patience and understanding throughout the week as the team worked hard to complete these items. Read More>>
What a difference one week makes with respect to the weather. Last Tuesday morning we had a record low of minus 8.9 degrees. Here we are now experiencing summer weather conditions. What this means for the turf is it has now gone from trying to recover from a poor winter to managing the daily stresses of heat and wind. It also means that we are now in position to perform certain cultural practices to assist in improving and recovering across the property. This will set the stage for the summer ahead. Read More>>
As we head into the weekend we are expecting to see some significantly low temperatures. These temperatures are far from ideal for turf maintenance and recovery. We will be backing off all mowing practices for the next few days to do all we can in protecting the greens that are still susceptible to these cold temperatures. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to work towards healthy turf to provide you with excellent playing conditions in the weeks ahead.

Please be aware that we will begin to fill the irrigation system today. During this process we may have random irrigation heads pop up as pressure builds. We will do our best not to interrupt your round as we complete this essential task.
