Next month will mark the 10th Anniversary from when we opened our back nine for play and the course just keeps getting better. We will be holding a fun scramble on July 4th to mark the exact 10-year anniversary. The tournament will start at 8:30am so that everyone can get to their afternoon celebrations and will cost $80 per player. Each player will get a couple of tee gifts, 3 drink tickets, lunch and we will have prizes for the top teams. Sign up on our website soon.
We are still trying to complete our bunker renovation project, but the frequent rains have made the progress slow down significantly. We will continue to work on these and other projects throughout the year and should make good headway as we move into our drier months.
We have started a new Customer Loyalty Program. We have punch cards in the golf shop and for every 10 paid rounds of golf you play with us, you will be able to take 40% off an article of clothing. Just ask for a card next time you play.

The summer heat will be fast approaching as we enter the first part of June. The course has received some beneficial rains during the month of May and the grass has responded well. We will be doing our first aerification on June 6th. Aerification is necessary to help relieve compaction and help aid in thatch removal. The aerification will take about 10 days to heal about 80% and then about 14 to 21 days for 100% healing.
