Arnold Palmer Course
Arnold Palmer Private Course: Opens November 14, 2008
The first cuts will be made this week on the fairways, tees, and rough. The turf is coming in even and should result in a great overseed. Maintenance will be working on lowering heights and prepping bunkers and golf supplies before the course opens on November 14.
Jack Nicklaus Private Course
Jack Nicklaus Private Course: Opens November 7, 2008
The overall overseed is filling in well. Due to high winds, we have been faced with challenges during the seeding and growing stages. As an example, these winds have moved seed in the shorter cut turf (mainly greens) and affected water coverage that created uneven germination of the ryegrass. We are currently reseeding some areas to ensure full coverage, which we hope to see in the next couple of weeks.

Tom Weiskopf Private Course: Opens November 21, 2008
The seeding was just completed on Saturday, November 1st. The overall prepping of the course went very well and a good germination is expected.
Stadium Course: Opened October 31, 2008
The new cart paths on #11 and #15 will help the quality of the overseed growth on these holes which we have not seen in the past. Please note that the new path on #15 does go though the bunker which will now be played as a “waste bunker”. Overall, the overseed is doing very well and has minimal disease damage; damaged areas have been re-seeded to help them recover as quickly as possible.

Overseeding has taken very well, although you will see some areas that were affected by Pythium. The affected areas have been re-seeded and are filling in nicely. We will start to spray Reward on the Bermuda grass next week to force it into dormancy and create the defined non-overseed areas within the course.
