February 2019 News

 

The golf course is in great condition from tee to green!  We have some nice weather in the upcoming forecast so make your tee times soon.  Our usual Skins Game this Sunday will be moved up to 10:00 in order to accommodate for watching the Super Bowl.  If you want to play just be here by 9:30 so that you can warm up and head to the first tee right before 10:00.

We have been making some great progress on the golf course so far this winter.  The bunkers on 13 and 14 have been renovated and they look great; we are currently working on the bunker on 16 and should be able to have it completed in the next week.  The only bunkers left to renovate after that will be the fairway bunker on 3 and the bunker behind 18 green.  We have further plans to improve the course once we get back to warmer temperatures.

We have just started selling premium cigars again. We currently have cigars by Montecristo, Camacho, Oliva, AVO, Rocky Patel and Ashton available in the golf shop, the pavilion or the beverage cart.

This is the time of year to renew or start a new GHIN handicap.  If you already have a handicap established, you will need to pay the annual $35 fee before February 25th in order to not have a lapse in your membership.  Handicaps are a great way to track your improvement over months/years, not to mention that most tournaments require that you have one established.

Our director of golf, Adam Grosch, will be on The Texas Golf Insider Show on Thursday, February 7th at 7:00pm.  The show can be viewed on Facebook Live on The Texas Golf Insider page.  There will also be a link through our Facebook page (if you don't already follow us, click HERE)   If you miss the show that night, you can always view it later on Facebook.


Our weekly skins games on Fridays and Sundays tees off at 12:00.  Your green fee and cart is just $35, plus $20 cash for the skins game. Anyone can play

Superintendent's Corner
The start of 2019 has been a wet one for us. We have had above average rainfall but thankfully fairly mild temperatures. We have put out our first application of a pre/post emergent herbicide and the poa annua that had broken out in the rough is withering away nicely. Our next application of a pre emergent  will be in early March to help prevent summer weeds from germinating.
