As many of you have noticed the course staff have been busy preparing temporary greens over the past few weeks. These greens will be used through the period of November – February when traditionally the soil greens hold water and puddle. Once the turf is so saturated that puddles or standing water begins to form, these greens must be closed. Allowing traffic on saturated turf would be detrimental to the playing surfaces as the turf is at its greatest risk of serious compaction in this condition. The decision to switch over and back from temporary greens will be made by the golf course maintenance team, the pro shop staff and members of the course committee.
January 11th – 17th greens 2, 10, 13 and 17 will be rested.
January 18th – 24th greens 12, 14 and 18 will be rested.
January 25th– 31st greens 1, 11 and 15 will be rested.
February 1st– 7th greens 2, 10, 13 and 17 will be rested.
February 8th– 14th greens 12, 14 and 18 will be rested.
February 15th– 21st greens 1, 11 and 15 will be rested.
February 22nd– 28th greens 2, 10, 13 and 17 will be rested.
Please understand that this Temporary Greens Policy must be adhered to or we will have to revert back to closing the golf course under extremely wet conditions to ensure the integrity of our regular greens is not compromised.
Thank you for your understanding as we continue to do our best to protect YOUR investment!
