Catching Up

Yesterday marked 5 weeks of playing golf, that literally flew by. A lot of things have happened, and I’ve had a few consistent questions, so I’ll try to shed some light on them. Question #1: Why were the deep tine holes on #13, 14, and 15 greens larger than the rest of the course this […]

Sloppy Sunday

 The golf course was getting exceptionally dry so last night’s 1.4” of rain was somewhat welcomed. However, golf carts won’t be allowed today, as there’s standing water over a lot of the property. The rain is supposed to come down most of the day, so we will evaluate carts for Monday, tomorrow morning. If you […]

Frosty Morning

We’ll be under another frost delay this morning. If you have a morning tee time, check in with the golf shop for updates. If you played yesterday, you saw our staff aerifying the fairway expansions. This process is hand-labor and time consuming, as well as very dusty. Remember, the golf course was supposed to be […]

First Frost Delay

We’ll be on our first frost delay of the Spring this morning. Hopefully it lifts quickly and has little effect on tee times. The night time temperatures have continued to dip into the 30’s this week, delaying recovery of many areas of the golf course – a few select greens, divots germinating, and the rough […]

Spring Adaptations

The 2020 golf season is underway. By no means is it a normal start, but one with several adaptations. Typically we have several weeks to prepare for opening day, but with the weather, and stay at home orders, this season’s start was anything but normal. If you haven’t played your first round of the year […]

Second, I hope everyone is staying patient during these unprecedented times. Golf is a fantastic sport for many reasons: the camaraderie, the […]

Holiday Groom

The winter trails have been groomed. It was great to see them getting some use this week. If you’ve been out, then you know that we’ve had to cross the trail a few times with our truck and chipper to complete our tree work. Unfortunately, this is unavoidable, and with no snow for the past […]

Saying Goodbye….

Saying goodbye to anything that you’ve depended on to be successful, on any level, is tough. It makes you reflect on what you’ve accomplished, as an anchor of your program. In my opinion, the staff is our biggest asset. Human Capital is an intangible asset that you invest in over the long-term, with education, training, […]

The Flip

The weather has flipped. I was hoping that it wouldn’t come this quick, as it has seemed to come earlier each year for the past three years. Looking at the forecast, and the extended models, it looks like the flip isn’t changing course. With the forecasted low temperatures in the 20’s and 30’s, and the […]

Bogged…

With the rain last night, and forecasted for most of the morning, the golf course will be open for play, but walking only. No carts will be allowed today.  The weather pattern that we’ve been in the past 7 days have been anything but kind. I’m certain I haven’t seen the golf course this wet, […]
