The calendar has hit August and its now time to test one's improvement this summer and find out where you stand with your peers. The course maintenance schedule is set up to put its best foot forward during the middle of August every year when we host the course championship. We vented the greens and fed the fairways and tees this week in preparation for the tournament.
These timely rains are perfect for the inputs we have added to bring more definition and character to your round and a competitive test next Saturday and Sunday August 13 & 14.
The bunker on the right side of 18 has been filled and sodded. In time the facelift will blend as if you never knew a bunker was there. The new tee box on 11 is in the construction process and showing progress daily.
We will have the course playing a little more favorable for those whom choose to play the white tees upon its completion. A new white tee on 16 will be the next upgrade once we complete 11.
Hard to think July has already come and gone. Still lots of sunny days ahead to play some amazing golf on "Alaska's Best Putting Greens"!
Our Course Championship, which is on August 13&14 is starting to fill in. We are going to cap this year's tournament at 120 players to help with pace of play and maintain the high quality of tournament play our players have come to expect. Get signed up sooner than later either online at the link below or in the shop next time you are in. The price of the tournament includes:
- 2 Rounds of golf w/cart
- Driving Range warm up for both days
