Golf Course Update


First off, I'd like to welcome everyone back to the course to enjoy the 2016 golf season. The picture above was taken this morning with our longest tenured employee Antonio Mejia, mowing #8 green for his 10th season in 2016!!!!! We are very fortunate to have brought back a large portion of our crew from prior years and we're off and running!!!

BALL MARKS


Unfortunately it seems as though every blog post includes a reminder to repair your ball marks. The picture above was taken on number 2 green this morning. All of the ball marks were within 10 feet of the cup. There were over 200 ball marks repaired on the golf course this morning from Friday's play alone. I can only hope this trend finds a way to go the other direction. When repairing your ball mark, please repair yours and one other!!!!!!! Please and thank you!!!!

BUNKERS


The second phase of our bunker renovations has begun. The picture above illustrates the right green side bunker being prepped for the Capillary Concrete install next week. We will be installing Capillary Concrete in the green side bunkers on holes 4,6, & 8 the upcoming week. We will be renovating a total of 12 bunkers this spring including holes 3, 11, & 13 green sides in the coming weeks.

PRACTICE TEE

The south end practice tee will be receiving a strip of synthetic turf this coming Monday. The mats will give the practice facilities a much needed break during times of recovery. We will use the mats for outside golf events, junior clinics, and will be most utilized in the late Fall and early Spring to allow proper recovery to ensure the tee's are in prime condition for the core golf season.

AERIFICATION

We will be aerating the greens with a 3/8" solid tine this up and coming Monday. The extended forecast looks like prime time conditions to give the greens a much needed shot of fresh oxygen along with sand and nutrients. We anticipate a full recovery in 7-10 days.

PONDS

The sudden wave of warmer temperatures has caused an algae bloom on the ponds on holes 3 & 4. There is a scheduled pond treatment application for this coming Monday.

SNOW


Hard to imagine it snowed a week ago today?!?!?!?!?! Crazy stretch of weather we have had to jump start the golf season. We're looking forward to a great home stretch to Spring and an even better Summer!! Thanks again.

Opening Day

The golf course will officially open today at 9:00. The course is extremely saturated. Here are a few quick hits on the golf course.
 
-cart path only-- due to the excess rains for the past few weeks we will be cart path only until we have a chance to dry out.

-practice facilities-- the putting green will be open. All other practice facilities are closed due to the wet conditions.
 
-bunkers-- the bunkers are a work in progress. We currently have he newly renovated green side bunkers ready for play on holes 1,5,7,10,&12. All of the other bunkers are to be played as ground under repair until we have a chance to restore them. As we restore the rest of the bunkers, we will be placing bunker rakes at each bunker. 

Thanks again and we're looking forward to a great 2016 season!!!

Golf Course Update

There's one word to describe the current course conditions, WET. Well make that 2 words, really wet. Due to the excessive rains over the past 48 hours, the golf course will remain closed through the weekend. The golf course will open on Wednesday (March 16th) with tee times starting at 9 AM.

We're looking forward to recreating this sunrise again very soon!!! Thanks and have a good weekend.
