April 2018 News


The weather is fantastic finally and our course is loving the warm temperatures and occassional rain.  The renovation of changing the greenside bunker on hole #7 into a pond is nearly complete.  Our crew is cutting railroad ties to line the face of the new pond and it looks great.  I believe that this change will help the pace of play since waiting for the green to clear and trying to drive the green is now much more risky.

We have a few other projects slated for this year to improve the golf course.  First, we will renovate the greenside bunker on hole #13.  Then we will renovate the greenside bunker on #14.  The bunker behind #18 green is on the list as well as the bunker on #3.  We will be changing the bunker behind the green on #4 into a grass bunker.  We are also hoping to widen and flatten some of the tee boxes on the par 3's during this growing season.  It's going to be an exciting year out here at Vaaler Creek Golf Club.

We have a lot of great new products in the golf shop including apparel from Travis Mathew and Criquet (based in Austin), and more being delivered regularly.

Our director of golf, Adam Grosch, will be on The Texas Golf Insider Show on Thursday, April 19th 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.

Superintendent's Corner
We have officially started off spring on the right track with very beneficial rainfall. We received over 3.25 inches at the end of March. The temperatures are starting to increase and the Bermuda is starting to wake up. We put out our spring application of pre emerge and fertilizer so that will aid in the emergence of the Bermuda grass out of dormancy.
