This year we are doing a skins game for our Big Cup tournament. Call in to create your own group. Everyone plays from the Green tees with our 8 inch big cups. Gross skins will be paid out.
$40 for the skins game and regular greens fees (punch cards & season passes can be used for round)
As you can see from the previous portion of the email the fall maintenance schedule has been modified. We did small tine aerification on the putting greens this past week in preparation for the coming winter. We have began to move the mowing height up as well to give the grass some more leaf to produce that photosynthetic energy and compensate for the shorter days. Our next big step in prepping for the winter will be the fall aerification that is scheduled for September 20 and 21, then the healing prior to turf covers going down on Oct 10. The next 3 weeks are your chance to play on these greens uninhibited by sand and fall preparation. Take advantage and swing into the bay for a couple more rounds.
