A note from our Superintendent, Steve Keller:

It’s 2020 and we are in a really good position going into the new year. It has been challenging and we may see some more wild weather but, overall we are pleased and busy repairing ball marks and filling divots. Golfers generally do a great job but, during the busy season we find the need to give these areas more attention, especially since turf recovery slows down, to almost stops during the cooler months.

Tapping down spike marks works great to allow players to do before putting, within the new rule change and we see players even after putting, tapping down areas around the flag where another player may have scuffed their feet and ruffled the turf. We appreciate this extra care and doesn’t take any extra time but, improves the experience for everyone.
We are proud of the staff and players working together as a team to keep the course at its best during our busiest time of year. Now golfers from all over the world visiting central Florida will be playing golf and we strive to provide the best conditions around through grooming to create rolling greens, blowing and cleaning leaves from tee boxes, fairways, bunkers and coquina areas and fine-tuning to create the perfection you see out here! The staff is on the course before daybreak preparing the course daily and making every effort to touch as many details as possible before the first early groups start. This is always a challenge as there is so much to do every day, but we do get it done! Much appreciation goes out to the dedication that goes into making us great. Thank you for all the players support and looking forward to another record year!
