Hi members. It sure feels like fall out there lately doesn't it. On September 7th we will be closing the course until 2:00PM to allow Tom to aeriate the greens in one day. The course will open for play at that time. Please plan your day accordingly. Thank you.

We are still studying the irrigation system plans. We have 3 different proposals to look at. We are also considering installing a computer irrigation control system. This will really help us manage our water system more efficiently. This will save water and wear and tear on the delivery system. We will keep you posted on these items.

This fall we will be doing more tree planting. We hope to fill in some of the empty space left by the removal of all the dead oak trees this summer. We will also be repairing and resurfacing cart paths. That should save wear and tear on the carts and on the riders.

We hope to go forward with the new practice facility as our next large project. This should be a really nice set up when it is complete. Stay tuned.

If you have questions or comments please contact me at or 444-3462. Thanks.

PS: remember to keep your head down and fix those ball marks.
-Steve Hagenah-Greens Chairman

Our last big event of the year, The Vandersluis, is only a few weeks away. We encourage you to think about playing in this fun event which takes place Sat-Mon, September 4-6. There are divisions for Men's Championship, Senior Men's Championship and Men's, Women's and Senior Men's Flights. Don't think you have to be a great golfer to play because many of the entrants are in the flights where players of equal ability compete against each other.
