October News

We are sure enjoying the change in weather.  The temperatures are great and the occasional rain is sure nice.  The golf course is in amazing condition right now!!

We will be over-seeding tees, fairways and greens in a couple weeks.  During the time that we wait for the seed to germinate we will be watering a little more than normal, but we will not be restricting carts to the paths.

Titleist has just released their newest irons and we're excited about the new advancements.  We will be hosting a fitting day on October 7th with a Titleist Representative and they will be using Trackman to see all the stats from every shot in order to fit you into the perfect club with the perfect shaft.  There are only 3 appointments still available for the fitting starting at 10:45am.  Please contact the golf shop if you would like to schedule an appointment for the free fitting.

Our weekly skins games on Fridays and Sundays start at  2:00.  Your green fee and cart is just $35, plus $20 cash for the skins game. Anyone can play, just show up and be ready to make birdies.

Superintendent's Corner
We have received some very beneficial rains in September. Total rainfall was 4.25 inches. On October 16th-18th we will be over seeding. We will over seed the greens with Poa Trivialis and the fairways and tees with a 3 way blend of perennial rye grass. It will take the seed about 10 days to germinate and pop on the greens and possibly a little longer for the fairways and tees.
