Course Update

Our greens have several varieties of Poe Anna (annual bentgrass) and a few of these are very weak due to excessive heat and humidity. Unfortunately, they have declined over the past four weeks due to temperatures reaching 88° or higher with extreme humidity over 75%. This causes leaf yellowing, reduces root length and can result in death of the bentgrass. With the soaring heat, we have had soil temperatures in excess of 101°. In addition, our lake water temperatures reached as high as 88°, which is not beneficial for cooling the soil.
To try to combat these conditions, we have raised the height of cut trying to relieve stress on the grass along with applying fungicides and green UV protectant (sunscreen for plants). We have had success over seeding new bentgrass into these areas and you can now see small square patterns of new bentgrass growing from these holes.
In the weeks ahead, these areas will continue to heal and improve.
Throughout this process, we thank you for your patience.
Happy Hour & Seafood Boil

Clear your calendars for Friday, August 10th and plan on spending the entire evening with us. First, we will host Happy Hour from 5:30pm - 7:30pm with entertainment by Eric Lewis. After Happy Hour gets underway, we will host our first ever Seafood Boil at 6:00pm...here's hoping it becomes another Club favorite!
