October 2018 News
We love the rain, but I think us golfers are all ready for the faucet to let up a little. We are coming into the best time of year and we are hoping that the weather is conducive for lots of golf.
If you haven't been out lately, we have completely finished turning the greenside bunker on hole 7 into a pond and the sod surrounding it is growing in beautifully. We've also turned the bunker behind the green on hole 4 into a grass bunker.
We will overseed tees, fairways and greens on October 16th and 17th. The course will be a little wet for about 2 weeks after that as we germinate the new seed and then we will have our typically incredible conditions all through the winter.
Our director of golf, Adam Grosch, will be on The Texas Golf Insider Show on Thursday, October 18th 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 September was a exceptionally wet month for Texas. The golf course almost had a foot of rain. It was a welcome site considering the summer was another hot and dry one. We will be over seeding October 15-17. We will use poa trivialis on the greens and a ryegrass blend on the fairways and tee boxes.
