The Golf Course is Open for the Season!
By Golf Superintendent Ben Larsen
The golf course has overwintered in terrific condition and is primed for another great season. This weekend’s forecasted warmer days will lift the soil temperatures just enough for our putting greens to break dormancy allowing for some recuperative potential from mowing, rolling, and foot traffic. As a result, the golf course, quarry course and putt-putt course will officially open today at 9 am.
Our Grounds Department staff has been prioritizing our clean-up efforts to the more playable areas of the course: Greens, Tees, Fairways, Bunkers and Cart Paths. Also, most of the golf course accessories (ballwashers, tee markers, garbage cans, and water coolers) have been set on the course, and the remaining will ready by next week.
