As our summer starts to cool off we look towards the winter and green maintenance. The putting greens were aerified on August 12 & 13 in preperation for the coming winter. We are currently mowing greens at .220" and we will be moving our hight of cut up as the days shorten in an effort to give the putting greens more leaf surface to build those precious carbohydrate reserves for the long winter ahead. We were able to aerify, seed, and topdress our tee boxes the week of August 19th. We had started aerifying our fairways too this fall and upon the weather cooling off we have suspended that for the season. We were able to get holes, 10,12,17, & 18 completed prior to the weather turning. We were pleased to have finally found it time to turn off the irrigation. We have not received that much rain but it is being soaked up the little we have received. Since the rain started to fall again on August, 31 we have only measured 1.25" at the golf course. But it is a sure welcome sight. The course really is in great shape as to be expected at this time of year. Don't pass up the next sunny day for a beautiful stroll on the grounds at the bay. Fall colors, crisp air, amoungst a manicured golf course with the magnificent mountain and ocean views can't be beat. Hope to see you before the snow flies.

We were able to get the golf course rated to reflect our new tee boxes and new set of tees that were added 3 years ago. Tees are now Black, Blue, White, Green. The out of bounds on holes 12 and 13 have been removed and is no longer a local rule. Play the ball as it lies on those two holes from now on. The Alaska Golf Association provided the rerate and informed us the slope was lowered one point for the Men.
