After the Deluge… Patriot Golf Day, 9/11

Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee have left our heads spinning these past few weeks. The course experienced 17 ” of rain over 10 days. We, of course, were not the only ones to suffer. Drainage work done over the past three years gave us a much better chance to dry out quickly. The course is coming back into its own, especially after the Fall aeration of tees and greens. Bowling Green was pleased to once again participate in Patriot Golf Day. Thanks to our golfers, $394 was collected over Labor Day weekend for Folds of Honor, an organization which

At the Grill Room, renovations to the bar proceed

At the Grill Room, we are surrounded by dust & debris as we are in the midst of our planned bar renovation. The re-opening is scheduled for January 4th when our winter live music season returns.

Course conditions hold up to summer weather extremes…

Summer weather can make it hard on Greens Superintendent Ernie Headley and his crew. This is the season for heat, humidity, too little rain, too much rain and you’ll see the crew out syringing on hot days, applying fungicides early in the morning against turf disease or repairing drainage after heavy rainfall. What you want to see this time of year is the crew conducting extra greens maintenance practices such as grooming and rolling. As it happens, weather extremes can play havoc with these practices. Overall, we’re pleased with the shape of the greens, tees and fairways halfway through summer. Cooler
