SAFETY REMINDER - Spring run-off is causing increased flow in Scotty Creek. The current is extremely strong and undermining of the creek bank may occur at any point. Trees can become unstable as well. Please exercise extreme caution near the creek. No ball is worth the risk. Please enjoy the golf course safely.  

Please consider all hydroseeded areas as ground under repair, and take free relief to the nearest point that is no nearer the hole. You are okay to walk on the seed. Please keep all carts off. Thank you.  

Last fall until now, we've transformed much of the golf course to improve your golf experience. We appreciate your patience as new greens grow in, new bunkers get ready for play, and newly seeded and sodded areas establish.

 

Frequently asked question, "When will the new greens be in play?" The new greens are trending toward opening on Friday, May 20th. We'll continue to maintain our temporary greens, which are now cut at the same mowing height, and play very closely to the same speed as all of our greens, so that we have the option to move on and off the new greens if and when they need a recovery break. The weather plays a large part in all of this, and most agree that it's been unseasonably cold, with fewer days of full sun, which hasn't helped in establishing the strongest stand of turf. Friday, May 20th, is the exciting day.
