From the Superintendent:
Winter time brings frost and frost delays. During the delays, please remember not to walk on the putting green or course until clearance has been given though the golf shop.
Ropes have been placed on the course to protect areas around the greens and high traffic areas. Please return your cart to the paths and do not drive on, or close to, the greens. This will ensure a better looking and more playable course this spring and summer.
Please remember to repair ball marks.
