The temps have done a good job freezing the turf. Our green profiles are now freezing through the night and not thawing in the daytime. What that means for us here at Briar, is that we will be open on temporary greens only until spring. The original back nine will have temporary greens.
Tonight, come get your pre-thanksgiving groove on as Nicole Jamrose plays in the Turn.

The weather has certainly taken a turn. Being stuck inside is no fun.
"So sad......wish I was playing golf"
We take the course and turn it inside out and backwards!! The big cups are in place in some interesting locations and the tee markers set for nine holes of some extreme golf.
This hole location is the old forward tee on nine red!
The ladies will play the cross country course this Friday. Meet at the fire pit at 10:00am, golf will follow. Chef Harry's chilli awaits you inside after the round. The ladies may play nine, or five, or three, doesn't matter come on out.
The men will play on the most favorable day following Thanksgiving! Format is two man scramble, pick your partner, Peoria handicapping, net and gross winners. Bring your guests from Thanksgiving out for a round to remember!!!

Well, it looks like it is that time of year again, time to think about snow skiing, but for my golfing friends, time to think about storing your golf cart for the winter. I always get questions about the winterizing process, this year I thought I would post a simple checklist for you.

The weather is changing!
We will be blogging over the next couple of days about winterizing your lawn equipment, golf carts, and small engines. One of our favorite products is seafoam, seen here at a home product megastore.
The cross country course is ready, should be epic, more detail to follow.

Every year when blowing the system is complete, I am grateful for a safe procedure. If the 2 inch hose from the compressor were to come loose, severe injury or death could result.
The age of our system requires that we take extra steps to maintain it. We want to make sure we keep this integral system fully functional for as long as we can.

We are blowing out irrigation the next couple of days.
Have a great day,
