Course “Clippings”
November, 2018 

       
     What a month October was! We experienced summer, fall and winter temperatures all in the span of a few days. I know you all are sick of the rain just like I am. Although I never thought I’d be tired of rain working in Texas. But really, enough is enough!
     During the month of October we finished overseeding tee boxes for the wintertime. We are starting to see that overseed “popping” up on the tee boxes now, and we will resume mowing tees once the winter grass is firmly established. It is important not to start mowing overseeded areas too quickly and risk the friction from the mower blades pulling out the seed.
    My staff and I would like to thank all the members who played in our “Trevor’s Revenge” Halloween Scramble. We had a lot of fun putting the course together for you to enjoy. Although, judging from some of the low scores, I’ll definitely have to make it even harder next year!
     Finally, if you see a member of the Grounds Crew working around the course, please take a moment to thank them for the job they’ve done over the last month. Trying to keep the course in playable shape with the amount of rain we’ve received has been a challenge, and I’m proud of all the hard work they’ve put in to produce a product our members can enjoy.
     Have a great November, and I’ll see you out on the Course.
