We are getting delivery of our new fleet of golf cars tomorrow! The new carts have lithium ion batteries for extended life and a better ride. The new carts will also feature a different GPS system that will be roof-mounted, which will cut down on the glare.
March 16th-April 14th will be the window for the annual Titleist Loyalty Rewarded Program. During this time you can order the new Pro V-1 or Pro-V1x with free personalization and for every 3 dozen that you order, you receive a fourth dozen for free. This essentially gets each dozen down to almost $40.
The renovation of the bunkers is progressing well. We have finished the bunkers on holes 4, 5, 6, 12, 15 and the fairway bunker on 18. We are currently working on the bunkers on holes 7, 10 and 14. Some of them are much bigger projects than foreseen once we get the old material out, but the end results have been a massive improvement and we will continue to work on all the bunkers.
We are going to organize a Summer League that will start in late April and run through the end of July. This will be a 9-hole event every Thursday evening. We will send out further details for the league in the next few weeks.

It seems like spring is coming along early this year. We had several days in the 80s this past month and a couple almost 90. The Bermuda grass is starting to green up and slowly grow. We will be taking the rough heights down to remove the dormant leaf tissue. It is necessary to do this to open the canopy up to allow sunlight to penetrate and allow the plant to photosynthesis more. While we are doing this process it will be leaving an excess of grass clippings behind. We ask for your patience while we get around to blowing and dispersing the excess clippings.
