Tuesday Delay

A strong front is coming through the metro, with heavy rains, lightning and wind. This will delay our maintenance this morning, and will have an effect on tee times. Once it’s safe, and dry enough to mow, we will resume, but will need time to get out and stay ahead of golf. The golf shop […]

First Groom

Justin Hemauer just completed the first winter-trail groom of the season. There is one important change to the route this year.
