Course Update Hole #5

After the drier 2020 weather, the ground was finally dry enough to access and cut down the dying willow tree in the area between #5 and #6.

This area of course has been a long-time issue to the course, and we hope we’re on the way to solving the issues once and for all.

Over the last week the grounds crew has been able to dig into the area. Finding 5 to 6 holes draining into the one spot made it evident the issue and that the attempted previous repairs with 4-inch pipe was inadequate.  Other pipe was also crowded with roots and there are still more areas of root clogging to discover. 

So: new 8-inch pipe has been laid, and a good new skeleton of drainage installed.

However, in accessing the area, we were met with absolute mud and constant water.  The area is extremely wet and will remain so for 2 to 3 months as it will take time and some lengths of dry weather for the area to dry up.

This area must be stayed out of and will be dangerously soft. It will be a free lift until we notify you otherwise.

While we wait for the area to dry, we will be formulating plans for tree replanting or landscaping.  We appreciate those of you who have offered suggestions and will take them into consideration, of course weighing all options as what is needed, feasible and affordable for that area.

Other Updates

  • Top dressing of the greens will occur next week.  For mid-April, and with that nice stretch of warm weather, the greens are coming along nicely for this time of year and after spring aerification.  They should be back to normal by Opening Weekend.
  • Greens cutting and/or rolling will resume on weekends beginning April 24th.
  • The entry way trees will be in soon and planting will begin any day now.  Please keep an eye out for our staff when pulling into club.

 
The trees are blooming, and the grass is starting to grow! We can’t wait to see it all in full swing and see you all soon!

April 2021 Dining Guidelines

Despite the arrival of the Covid-19 vaccine, the following policies are still in effect for the foreseeable future:

  • Masks must be worn at all times while moving around the facilities except while seated and dining or on the course (even if you have received the vaccine)
  • Please remember to practice social distancing at all times

We have voluntarily signed an agreement with the state to be allowed at this percentage and will follow all guidelines to keep you, your families, and our staff as safe as possible.  We are also reducing our operational hours to remain cost effective for the club’s financial well-being. Thank you in advance for your understanding.  Please read the below guidelines carefully:

The Clubhouse will be open for dining at 75% beginning Wednesday, April 7th.

Reservations are Required by 4:00 pm

Wednesdays to Sundays 12 pm to 8 pm

(Closed Mondays and Tuesdays)

724-238-7620 ext 2-2 (During operational hours only)

A limited number of seats at the bar will be open for walk in service, with a food purchase no longer required.

  • Make your reservation early. Any night has the potential to fill up quickly.
  • We can seat 90 people throughout the 3 dining areas, so though you may request which room you’d like to sit in, your party number and time of reservation may dictate your table location.
  • Tables will be spaced 6 feet apart.  Do not move them.
  • Parties of 6 or 8 will be seated in the ballroom. Parties larger than 10 will be seated at multiple tables.
  • Consider coming early in the month and for an earlier dinner time so you don’t run out of days to use your minimum.
  • We reserve the right to close an hour early if there are no reservations.

Curbside Pickup will be available off the menu.

  • You may place your order at any time during the day and specify the time of pickup. Curbside may not be available after 6 pm on busy nights.
  • A heat and serve menu will continue to be available as well. These items will need to be ordered 48 business hours ahead of pickup.
  • The $2 to-go fee will be reinstated on April 7th.

Please keep your visit to under 1 ½ hours.

  • The essence of the guidelines is to discourage mingling and to shorten the amount of time of possible exposure.
  • We also need time to sanitize table and chairs between reservations, so please avoid lingering.

The clubhouse will be disinfected daily and highly touched areas disinfected hourly.

Reference our Blog for any other state or CDC guidelines not included above.

You are permitted to order your food and beverages for take out and sit on the patio when the weather allows.

From the Pro ~ April 2021

Dear Members,

We can say the Golf Season is finally here and March gave us some great golfing weather. Our Virtual Golf Bash was a huge success, selling out all our tickets and donating $1,250 to the Union Mission Shelter. We also were able to hold our kickoff event, The Shamrock Open, with an attendance of 52 players on a beautiful 60-degree day.

We can only hope April will be just as good and the summer mimics last year. This year, with a full golf schedule, the Golf Shop will be informing and reminding you of what is to come at the club. Each Tuesday, a newsletter like this will be sent out with highlights, results, upcoming information and even one of kind Golf Shop Sales.
