Course Update

So far this fall we have not experienced much in the way of fall color. With two frosts setting in last week I should think this week we may see the color change. By now you have seen or heard about the new Springville Country Club signs being installed. Today the masons removed the forms for the caps and Wednesday we will have the columns and signs installed. From concept to fruition this has been long anticipated and we are very excited to see it completed.

With the weather changing quickly on us and snow in the air, I have moved up by one week the deep tining of greens. Wednesday afternoon I have a contractor starting this soil relieving process of all greens and we will finish on Thursday. This is accomplished by using a machine that creates a 1/2″ x 9″deep hole every 4″. This process is important to exchange gases and increase the rate in which water percolates through the soil profile. These holes will remain open to allow this process to continue through the winter months. We will have “Hole Closed” signs at each Tee. Thank you for your patience.
