The summer always takes a toll on the course but we’re doing everything we can to keep the playing conditions high.

MARK DOWN TENTATIVE AERATION DATES

We are scheduling our aeration tentatively for late August or early September .  This is totally dependent on the weather and is subject to change.  We do recommend to call ahead for reservations and inquire about the aeration.

GOOD TIP

To fix a pitch mark on the green:  You don’t need a special tool.

  1. Locate back of pitch mark and insert your tee into the ground behind it.  Now push the top of tee forward.
  2. Repeat this process on the sides, pushing ground back to middle.
  3. Tamp down with your putter to smooth out mark.

Doing this will keep the surface of the green in better shape for ALL golfers.  If everyone fixes their own mark plus one more, the surface will be very nice. 

 

BAD LIES

(And I’m not talking about something you tell to someone else).
Heavy grass: Use a 7, 8 or 9 iron and hit down and thru the ball.
Across water: Use normal swing.  Keep head down.  Into the wind: Place ball off RIGHT foot and take it easy.  Close lies:  Hit down on ball, don’t scoop.

 

We have a league for everyone.  Mens, ladies and couples.  Couples league starts tonight at 6pm and will continue every Thurs through August.  AND, this Monday night the men’s league RETURNS.  Play will start at 6pm.  Joe Gandolfo will be the captain.   Contact the pro shop for details.

Tee times are highly recommended as we get very busy certain days and certain times throughout the week.
