With under a month left in the season, I wanted to provide one more update to our members and guests.
Monthly 50/50 draw - The September jackpot is currently at $1559. The draw date is September 30, 2020.
White stakes with a black top - We have many of these new stakes around the golf course, which are used to mark areas that golf carts are NOT to drive. We ask that all carts respect these areas that are marked to help keep our course in outstanding condition.
Red stakes with a green top - These stakes are used to define environmentally sensitive areas. Please do not drive your cart in these areas. A free drop is permitted from this area. Do not play your shot within the designated area.
Dogs on the golf course - We have many dog walkers on the golf course. Please note that golfers have the right of way. Additionally, many dog owners are leaving bags filled with dog excrement in the trash bins on the course. We truly appreciate that pet owners are cleaning up after their pets but we also kindly ask that all pet owners respect our Turfcare team and deposit the bags of pet waste in trash cans located outside the golf course.
Cart Paths - We have a newly added cart path to the forward tees on Hole #1. Please keep the carts on this pathway to limit the soil compaction on the turf when traveling to the red tee box. We have witnessed an increased incidence of Carts parking on the grass around greens, rather than leaving them on the pathways. When this happens it significantly increases the stress to the turf. We ask that all cart users make an effort to keep the carts on the pathways around the greens and tee boxes.
Early Bird Memberships - We have 9 brand new members to the golf club, so far. These new members have taken advantage of the early bird membership drive. Welcome to the club!
Hopefully, the weather holds out for the remainder of the year, however, we do anticipate frost delays. We have had a terrific year despite the pandemic and we anticipate that the final few weeks of the year will add to the club's success.
