Hello to All:



May brings beautiful sunny and warm days and we have had plenty of wonderful days!

 Our course is starting its way back to summer shape.  The cooler than average winter/spring has not allowed the Bermuda grass to really thrive just yet. You might not be aware of this but, Bermuda grass, when dormant (brown in color), requires a night-time temperature in the low 60’s to really thrive.  Due to the unusually cold and wet weather pattern this spring we are just starting to see fairway and rough mowers cutting grass. 

Rob Vaughan, Golf Course Superintendent, and his staff are doing a great job!  Thanks to Rob & Staff.

 Starting May 30th our yearly maintenance will take place; which will include tees, fairways, and greens.  Although this is not our favorite time of year it is a necessary evil in order to ensure good greens and healthy grass in the years ahead.  We will close one nine for a week at a time to allow for better healing and for our superintendent to address other issues for that particular course.

 Here is our 2016 maintenance schedule, with cooperation from the weather. Courses TBA.

May 30 thru June 5

 June 6 thru June 12

  June 13 thru June 19

Happy Golfing,
