Frost

Unfortunately there is frost this morning, and it will effect tee times, as the tee sheet is full. We will forgo a few maintenance practices ahead of play, when the frost does lift, to get everyone out on the course as soon as possible. Watch Foretees for tee time changes, and contact the golf shop […]

Spring Update

The golf season has begun, and there’s a few things I’d like to update everyone on: The golf course is very wet from over 2″ of rain last week. This, combined with acres and acres of sod, and seeded areas, creates quite the challenge. We won’t pin areas of green expansion until they dry out, […]

Spring Fever

Winter has been long. The snow is gone (for the next few hours). Everyone wants to get out and play. A tradition like no other in Minnesota, sparked by the first few nice, warm days of early Spring, is “when will the golf course open?” This question is usually followed up by, “well xyz golf […]

The success of this process will really depend on your cooperation.   On […]

The Stage is Set

On Monday, the golf course Master Plan work begins. #1 and 5 greens will go to temporaries in their fairways. You will see Hartman Constrution, along with our staff, begin the labor-intensive demo process. Because of design changes, both of these greens need a large amount of soil hauled to them. That soil will come […]

Another Deluge

We didn’t need the 1.6″ of rain we received last night, as we were still reeling from the 2.75″ 10 days ago. With the lack of a “Maintenance Monday” this week because of the holiday, we were already behind with mowing (especially the rough), unfortunately today will put us back even further. Today carts will […]
