The cost for the event is $150+ per person and will include golf, carts, lunch, participant gifts and dinner. The fee helps the Club offset expenses and underwrite the costs for our invited military guests, who pay nothing to participate. If you are unable to play in the Scramble but would like to contribute to help underwrite the costs of this event, we would be most grateful for your support. Proceeds from the event will be donated to a charitable organization. If you would like to contribute, please email Nic Ingram at with your donation amount and we’ll charge it to your member account. This year we’re also offering a limited number of seats for members who aren’t able to play in the event but who would like to attend the celebratory dinner.

GOLF COURSE MAINTENANCE Gary Sailer, CGCS Director of Golf Course Maintenance

Hello everyone! I hope this fall has been enjoyable for you. We had great weather in October and we hope for nice weather in November and December as we still have much to accomplish with golf course maintenance. Pre-emergent applications will be going out in both our rough and native areas in November. This is for grassy weed control going into next season. Our focus then starts to shift toward checking depths in bunkers and adding sand where necessary before the ground freezes. We’ll also continue work on our capital projects which include the stream/ water feature restoration on #17 and pulling power to #6 green for a fan that is much needed in this area. We recently repaired several panels of cart path that are near the back of the range area. These cart path panels were undermined from all of the rain we received this year and were unsafe (see the before and after photos on the right). Tree work will begin in December as our agronomic practices wind down for the year. A main area of focus for tree removal will be the left side of #1. We will also address the narrowing tee chute on #3 and remove dead trees in areas where shade is detrimental to turf grass health. Here’s wishing you all a safe and happy holiday season! Regards, Gary Sailer, CGCS Director of Golf Course Maintenance
