November 2018 News


We are really hoping for some warmer and drier weather for a while before winter sets in.  We completed the overseed of our tees, fairways and greens last week.  I always anxiously await the first time we mow after the seed germinates to see the dark green stripes in the fairways.  It won't be long.

It's the perfect time to come by and test out the new Titleist TS metals and maybe get yourself an early Christmas present.  You will be amazed at how much longer and more forgiving they are. 

Our director of golf, Adam Grosch, will be on The Texas Golf Insider Show on Thursday, November 15th 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
October was an exceptionally odd month in terms of temperature and rainfall. We had several days that our highs did not get out of the low 40's. As a result of the wet weather we were 2 weeks late getting our greens and fairways over seeded. We will resume our bunker project this fall and complete our last 5 bunkers that need to be redone.
