Course Update 9/9/11

North Course: Welcome Back! Last weekend went well with full tee sheets until 12:00pm on both days. The greens are better than last week so if you aren't playing in The Brute - come out to the North and check out the new greens. Earlier this week we aerated the greens in an effort to help smooth the surface and prepare the greens for their first winter. The aeration combined with light vertical mowing, fertilizer and chemical applications, and aggressive rolling made a big difference. The greens will continue to make significant progress throughout September and October. The course will be a combination of cart path only and 90 degrees this weekend. All par 3s, #1, #5, #7, #13, #18 will all be cart path only this weekend. Please avoid driving in turf that looks to be stressed. We will return to cart path only on all holes following this weekend's play.

Here is the schedule from here on out for opening the North:

Saturday the 10th - Open
Sunday the 11th - Open
Monday - Closed
Tuesday - Closed (pending South Course aeration completion)
Weds the 14th - Open for Ladies Day
Thurs the 15th - Open with limited tee times
Friday the 16th - Open full time

Thank you for your patience and please understand that we may have to close on certain days to perform necessary maintenance.

South Course: Good Luck to everyone playing in The Brute this weekend. We look forward to a great tournament. The greens were intentionally slowed down this week in order to recover from last weekend's heat and wind. However, the should be back to normal and putting well for the tournament. Our last aeration is planned for Monday afternoon following the tournament. This will be the last aeration of the year and is absolutely necessary in order to help the greens have a good fall and spring.
