Course Conditions

 

Saturday June6, 2015

Both courses are in very good condition as we transition to summer bermuda grass. To jump start this process we will start to lower mower heights in the roughs to allow more sunlight to get to the bermuda grass. As the temps start to rise we will be aerifying some areas of the course on a day to day basis. Major greens aerification will take place in July. See below for dates.

**Prepping involves turning the water off and drying out the golf course. The golf course maintenance staff will be working throughout the week cutting (scalping) the grass very short, blowing and vacuuming grass clippings. Conditions will be brown, dusty, dry and fast. Allergy Alert!

All Golf Carts will be restricted to the cart path after the courses re-open until the grass is strong enough to handle normal wear and tear from golf cart traffic. Typically this can be up to the 2nd week of December on Sidewinder and up to Christmas Day on the Dinosaur Mountain golf course.
