StaLok Bunker Liner Trial

If you happened to play golf yesterday afternoon you may have noticed the project on the back bunker on #6.  If you happened to play golf in the last year or two you may also have noticed the old Klingstone bunker liner is beginning to degrade.  We are testing a material similar to the substrate used on baseball fields.  It is a polymer coated clay that is supposed to flex more and withstand traffic better than the Klingstone.  I am anxious to see how it performs this fall and next spring with the elk and bison traffic that bunker seems to always see.  Stay tuned for pictures and early opinions of the test installation.

Frost Delay 8.22.17

Cold nights have brought more regular frost recently.  Today the first tee time will be delayed 30 minutes.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  These delays may be common this week, our first tee time moves to 9:00 am next Monday (8/28), which should help realign the tee sheet with nature's weather patterns.  But as you all know, clear and cold nights can bring significant frost events that have the potential to slow down morning play.

Total Eclipse of the Golf Course

Today we are fortunate enough to be located very close to the center line of totality.  This means the golf course will experience the total eclipse for over two minutes.  Whether you decided to play golf and experience the eclipse during your round or just want to enjoy it from our viewing area, I hope everyone at the club enjoys this once in a lifetime event.  Please be safe today: wear your eclipse glasses and travel safely home!
