With winter coming to an end and spring fast approaching, the maintenance team is switching gears from projects to preparations for the upcoming season.
Winter projects included a large amount of tree limbing around the property, which opened up some views across holes, made areas more player-friendly, and will help the overall health of our grass by allowing more air movement and light.
We also removed collar dams on 7 of our greens, which help with surface drainage and eliminating such a severe transition onto our putting surfaces.
We started on our list of tee complexes that need to be leveled, which over time have become uneven.
We spruced up the entrance of our wedding area with landscaping and relocated the remainder of our Rhododendrons to areas where they will hopefully thrive without interfering with irrigation.
Part of preparing for the upcoming season is our spring aerification.
This will take place on April 13th and 14th for the Cascade course, and early May for the Olympic course, following the Mountain West Tournament.
We look forward to seeing how these projects and newly implemented cultural practices will continue to improve play for the upcoming season.
We look forward to seeing you out here!
