Driving Range and Golf Course Opening Dates

Three green has been the site of ice damage and crown hydration in the past but looking great for spring golf this year.


It looks like the weather later next week will be moving past winter and into more of a warmer spring weather pattern with highs in the lower 50s.  My plan is to have the driving range with mats and the chipping area open at noon on Thursday, March 30th.  Some of my seasonal staff will be back starting Sunday April 2 and we’ll have the dry nine (1,2,3,15,16,17,9,10,18) open on Wednesday April 5th at noon.  

The golf course is in great shape besides the epic amount of sticks and limbs from that two day windstorm a few weeks ago.  Carts will be available. Tee times each morning will depend on the nighttime temperatures as well as any frost but normally we are good to go by 10:00 in early April.  The pro shop will have their normal April course open hours.

You can see the winter snow mold disease pressure outside of the fairway spray into the rough.  We spend a 1/4 of our fungicide budget on this late October spray.  All greens, tees, fairways and the driving range are sprayed to help prevent snow mold and ensure great spring conditions.
