Short week

We had quite a bit of work to accomplish this week before the holiday. Starting the week off trying to spray some of the undesired cool season turf and clover out of the zoysia grass. You may have noticed a light green tint from the tracker dye. From there we spent two full days marking sprinkler heads and edging around them. Finally, with high chances of rainfall coming Thursday we decided to do a little heavier than normal topdress. Where usually we settle the sand in with overhead irrigation, this time the sand was drug in with a coco mat. The course will be closed on Thanksgiving day but will reopen for the holiday weekend! We would like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you enjoy the day with your families! Safe Travels.

Project Complete!

Good morning! As we draw a conclusion to another crazy week here at the Ridge, we would like to give you a few updates. First off, our edging of the bunkers has been completed. #4 greenside was one of our bigger tasks but we were able to finish it up Thursday afternoon. There are currently 7 of our 52 bunkers to completely renovate and will hopefully get to them soon. Also there were some crazy winds that whipped through this past weekend causing some damage to our shop roof, however we have some great members on our maintenance staff who have prior roofing knowledge and were able to tackle that task for us! Finally we did receive about an inch and a half of rain Tuesday. Unfortunately that restricted us to cart path only a few days sooner than we would have hoped and we will be strictly path only for the remainder of the season.

Bunker Renovations

If you have been out to play lately, you have probably noticed that a majority of our bunkers were renovated this summer. Where it used to take up to two days of pumping out bunkers after a heavy rainfall, the renovation has reduced that down to none. Currently we are touching up the edges and digging out some of the washout areas. This is a tedious process but has greatly improved the quality and appearance of our bunkers.

New Blog

Welcome to the Maintenance blog at Falcon Ridge Golf Club. Throughout the year we receive many questions regarding the operations we are working on. That being said, we have decided to create this blog to keep our guest informed on the progress we are making. We hope that you find this beneficial and enjoy our golf course!
