We were able to winterize, all is good.
Then the rain came.
Our cart paths are not very wide. Moving a house on wheels is not the easiest thing to do in reverse. Pull forward to straighten out, and you are stuck. Two tractors and a hundred foot of chain later.....lift the hitch of the compressor and pull on the back.....unstuck.
We will close the greens this weekend, but we are watching the forecast for thanksgiving, in case we can allow play on them. The course will be closed on the day of the cross country. Please contact the golf shop if you would like to play. The cross county is a great event that you won't want to miss!
Have a great day,

Below are a few shots of the parts used and the blocking that must take place on the system. Our irrigation system operates at a fairly high pressure, so anywhere the pipe changes direction must be secured.
It is that time of year again, where we talk about the closing of the greens. We do not want to play on any green with a frozen layer in it. We are watching the nighttime lows and daytime highs. When the greens will have a consistently frozen layer in them, we will close them to play.
Looking at the forecast, that could be as early as Saturday. If there is a chance for a warm weekend over Thanksgiving, the closure will be temporary, and we will open for good weather. Good weather will be nighttime above freezing and above 50 daytime.
We are watching the forecast and will update the blog regularly.
The ladies will be playing cross country on Friday.
We will have another cross country on the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving, guests are welcome! This nine-hole event is a blast that you won't want to miss! Two person scramble, pick a partner!
We are blowing out the irrigation system this week, so no, the golf course is not on fire :-),
Yes we get that call.
Have a great day,

The nighttime lows will dip below freezing, that means the course bathrooms will be closing. Sorry for the inconvenience, the halfway bathrooms will stay open a bit longer until we blow out the irrigation system. We still have a few good days left, come out and enjoy it,
