Both courses are in excellent condition with the greens running smooth, true and fast! Soon we will start to 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.
