Last nights storm

We received another inch of rain last night which brings our weeks total to three inches. Carts will be allowed but please follow stakes and signs. Unfortunately, we received substantial winds as well so there is debris everywhere. Greens will not be cut or rolled as all labor will go into blowing off all playing […]

Wash Out

With 2.25″ of rain yesterday a few things happened. Unfortunately, the scheduled projected of sealing cart paths around the clubhouse did not happen. The paths need to be dry for the sealant to adhere properly. With the course scheduled to be closed all day, our department missed out on topdressing greens, solid tining of all of the […]

Course Update

  Wow, May and June went by fast. Really fast! Here’s an over due update on the course, common questions I’ve received,  projects we’ve completed, as well as what’s ahead for our department.         Our cultural practices on the playing surfaces, especially the greens, are showing their worth as we approach the summer months. We […]

Frost Delay

There is a frost delay this morning. At 30 degrees, it’s currently too cold to water off with the irrigation system. With the sunshine this morning, I predict we will be able to get on the course around 9:00-10:00am. Check with the Golf Shop for updates.   Thanks for your patience.

Spring Update 2.0

Just when we thought Spring was upon us, Winter decided it’s not ready to let go of us quite yet. We were scheduled to open the golf course tomorrow, but with the 3″ of snow we received Monday morning, and the forecasted 1-2″ of snow tonight, opening day will obviously be delayed. We will make a decision on […]

Spring Update

Spring has sprung! I wasn’t exactly imagining it would come this fast, but after the winter we had, it’s more than welcomed. As of this morning, there are only small pockets of snow on the ground, mostly in bunkers and on North facing slopes. It’s easy to get excited about the Spring golf season and we look to be […]

Midland Tree Management

Golf Course Trees. They are often a hot topic of debate across the country. Do they belong, where do they belong? Are they fair? Do they add value/strategy or take away from the original Golf Course Architect’s design intent? Are they safe? Do they outcompete fine turfgrasses from which golf shots are played from? Do they block vistas that […]

Winter Sport Trails Groomed

We’ve groomed the winter sport trails today. Unfortunately the snow is becoming somewhat thin in areas from being blown around so you will notice we didn’t lay down a fresh classic cross country ski track. The groomer needs sufficient snow so it won’t dig into the ground and the ski trail is too packed down. However there […]
