Happy New Year Golfers!

We are looking forward to a great 2016 with plenty of good golf, some great events and turf conditions that will continue to improve. We struggled this year with a limited fleet of machinery after the fire in early 2015 but now we are back to operating with nearly a full fleet of equipment so you will see the gradual improvement in the conditions as we move through the year. Typically improvements in turf quality are noticeable well after the cultural practices are performed. You will notice that currently, the fairways are a little thin in some areas, and although some of that is due to added wear from the high number of golfers, some of it is attributable to the fact that we have been unable to perform many of the normal maintenance procedures throughout this past year. We are happy to say though that we are looking forward to a bright year ahead!

Thank you,

Sincerely,
JOE MILLAR

Dear Golfers,

The month of December brought with it many golfers and plenty of rainfall. Although not as cold or wet as December 2014, past experience has allowed for the golf course to be managed differently which has helped decrease wear even though high volumes of golfers have stayed the same.

High volumes of traffic have called for a surplus amount of ropes on the courses. They are there to help direct golf buggies away from thin areas.

There has been a small amount of turfing work done to a couple of these areas on selected fairways. These areas consistently have a few things in common:

1 - very close to the cart path entry/exit points
2 - highly shaded, well into the late morning
3 - a substantial amount of tree root matter found in the growing medium

These areas will only be out of play for 2/3 weeks. Hopefully the weather improves within the next month so that the maintenance team can execute a pain free schedule that will help improve turf quality dramatically.

Good golfing.

Dan Brown
Golf Course Superintendent.

RULE OF THE MONTH

During this month of January we all know that the golf course is very busy so there are some policies that we need to follow in order for everyone to have a chance to play and get around the golf course in a timely manner. Tee times are in high demand so please book in advance and be sure to check in 30 minutes prior to the tee-time so that you can be ready to tee off on time. We do have a waiting list most days so we may not be able to accommodate flights that arrive late. Because of the high number of players, it is important that flights keep up with the pace of play in order for everyone to finish their rounds on time and have an equal opportunity to enjoy the course. The maximum pace of play for 18 holes is 4 hours and 30 minutes. The link here shows the amount of time allotted for each hole: Pace of Play Guidelines. We respectfully ask that everyone follow the instructions given by the course starters and marshals so that play can run smoothly. We understand that not all players have the same amount of golfing experience so we have included a few helpful hints below for faster play.

1. Play “Ready Golf”.
a. While others are making their shots, get yourself ready to play your shot by checking the yardage and choosing your club so that you are ready to address the ball and play when it is your turn.
b. The player who is ready first should play first rather than wait for the person who has the honor or who is away.
2. When sharing a buggy, drive to the closest player’s ball and drop him and his caddie off with some clubs and sand and then drive to the second player’s ball. This way both players can be readying themselves for the shot at the same time and can come back together in the buggy after the shots.
3. On the putting green, read the green and decide on your line and stroke while others are putting in order to save time when it is your turn.
4. Many players take too much time standing over the ball and make too many practice swings before they make a stroke. 10 to 12 seconds is plenty of time from the moment you start your routine until you make a stroke.
Happy Holidays and thank you for making golf a more enjoyable game for all!
Thanks,
Joe Millar, PGA
