June 2018 News
We have had an amazing Spring!! The course is in some of the best condition since we opened. Of course, just when we get the greens perfect it's time to aerify. We will be doing our annual full aerification on June 5th and 6th. With the temperatures where they are and the health of the grass, we expect them to recover pretty quickly. They will be heavily sanded to start with and as that works its way into the soil the aerification marks will start being exposed. After about 10 days we should be able to be back to mowing them down to regular height and the marks should be disappearing. Throughout the hot summer months we will do a few other necessary maintenance projects to the greens but it's all for the greater good.
Our director of golf, Adam Grosch, will be on The Texas Golf Insider Show on Thursday, June 28th 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.

The month of May was a roller coaster for our temperatures. We started out with cooler temperatures and then we warmed up extremely quickly. We have averaged 10 degrees above average daily towards the end of this month. We will be deep aerifying greens on June 5th. It will take roughly 10 days for the greens to recover.
