NOVEMBER 2017

Our wonderful winter golfing season is upon us, and the course maintenance team is ready for another season of terrific playing conditions and exciting golf. As the month of October came to a close, the course was finally able to start drying out after the summer rains and we were also able to address detailing around the course that was delayed due to the hurricane clean-up process. We also entered into a new golf course equipment lease package, which includes some of the most advanced golf course equipment on the market today that will aid us in reaching our goal to produce optimal playing conditions throughout the year. Our wonderful winter golfing season is upon us, and the course maintenance team is ready for another season of terrific playing conditions and exciting golf.

Our greens are heading into their fourth season and are strong and healthy as a result of our summer aerification program. We are also delighted with the condition of our fairways, tees, and approaches. The groundwater table remains extremely high, which continues to cause some challenges in the rough on Holes 9 and 10, as well as in some of lower bunkers, particularly the in the fairway bunkers on Hole 15 and 18. The management team is working towards establishing a long-term plan to address these areas to avoid unfavorable conditions coming out of the rainy season going forward.
After completing the annual overseeding of the course and range, I’d like to share a few reminders that will assist us in our course maintenance efforts: • In order to protect the delicate seedlings, please use cart paths only through November 5.  Monday, November 6 will be the first day off the paths. • Please continue to drive on areas with the greenest grass in the roughs and fairways, while  also following the exit signs before you reach the greens complexes. • Lastly, please continue to focus on condensing your practice divots as tightly as possible, which allows us to maximize the use of turf and the quality of the practice tee.
Thank you all for your support and we look forward to seeing you on the course.
