As of Friday, September 28th, the putting greens were aerified in preperation for the coming winter months on Monday August 20th. This is the big push to put the turf in the best possible position to make it through another winter. The greens are fully recovered and back to what you have come to expect from us here at the bay. We are currently mowing the greens @ .260" and will be raising the HOC each week by .020" in order to stimulate carbohydrate reserve for winters wrath. Each year we are seeing more and more bentgrass calling "Alaska's Best Putting Greens" Home. The 2019 Season Pass Sales Starts this coming Monday, October 1, 2018.

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.
