August 2018 News


It's been a warm one to say the least.  Our course has sustained it's marvelous conditions throughout the heat, but we are all looking forward to some more comfortable playing conditions.  They are just around the corner now, so start thinking about making tee times in advance.

We are creeping into our second season for tournaments as you can see in the "Upcoming Events" portion of the newsletter, so please make sure you book a tee time before making the drive to the golf course.

Our director of golf, Adam Grosch, will be on The Texas Golf Insider Show on Thursday, August 23rd 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 start at  2:00 throughout the summer.  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
The heat is on! We have had several days with temperatures well over 100 degrees. The course is holding up well considering the heat. We will be aerifying and doing an aggressive double verti cutting this month on the 21st and 22nd. I understand the cultural practices are disruptive to the putting surfaces but they are vital to maintain healthy greens long term.
