The maintenance crew was able to complete the majority of the dormant seeding before the last snowstorm hit. This is great news, it will ensure that once the spring hits, they can focus on the damaged greens as the rest of the course begins to grow. Our maintenance crew is more hopeful than ever that we will be able to reach our hopeful re-open date on July 1st. We just all have to keep hoping for a great spring season!
We are also offering a deal on gift cards for the holidays. If you purchase a gift card of $50 or more before the end of December, you will receive a free hat of your choice! The golf shop is open every day, whether we have snow on the ground or not, other than Christmas Eve and Christmas. Come on in and get a gift card for someone and give the gift of golf this holiday season.
(offer not applicable on bucket hats, offer only valid if gift card is purchased at the golf shop)
November 1st, 2013:
We have been able to re-open a modified 9 hole course. 6.5 holes suffered severe damage from the flooding and will need to be re-grassed before we can re-open them for play. Our plan is to dormant seed the damaged fairways, tees, surrounds, and rough areas this fall and will reseed the 5 damaged greens in the spring. This way we have the best chance of re-establishing turf as soon as the growing season begins. Unfortunately, this means that we will not have the full 18 open for play until July 1, 2014 at the earliest. Although our goal is to open the course and get back to normal operations as soon as possible, we don't want to compromise the conditioning play of the course moving forward. We will make sure new conditions our top notch and strong enough to handle play.
The modified 9 holes that are open consist of holes 1,2,3,8,9,10,16,17,18 - it is a par 36 (par 72 for 18 holes) and does have a slope and rating, so you may continue posting through the rest of the active season. All other facilities are open, including the range, and the Par 3 course.
Until the full course opens, we will be offering several different flood offers. Please see our Rates page to see all new offers.
