We all know our course is in terrific condition right now and we all know it doesn’t get that way without a lot of work by our maintenance crew. Great work everyone on the Grounds Crew! Online booking is open again and the full course is open again for play.
A note from our Course Superintendent:
Well, as there is never a great time to aerate, it is a necessary evil that will be completed on all courses each year.
The dates I have planned for ours (depending upon weather as always) are: the week of April 30-May 4 (Monday & Tuesday) and again August 27-31 (Monday Tuesday)
We close 9 holes each day (front 9 first day, back 9 second day) so that work can be completed on that 9. NOTE: To play 18 you will need to contact the Pro Shop for tee times – ONLINE BOOKING WILL BE CLOSED FOR THOSE TWO DAYS.
I will also be trying to vent our greens monthly through the season to allow more air exchanges and better water infiltration. Venting is pretty much non-disruptive after it is complete. This process can be carried out with out closure of play. I
