Golf Course Closed
Saturday, November 16, 2019
The golf course is closed due to snow cover.
The GPC opens at 7:00 AM. Please see the following note about the outdoor driving range tee.
***The driving range tee and short game practice area are now closed for the season. With these low temperatures, the plant is transitioning into dormancy and is unable to recover from divots without active plant growth.
Old #9 will remain open for a few more weeks. Putting greens will remain open all winter, pending weather. Thank you.
Bunker sand has been installed on the three right side bunkers on Hole 7. Sand has not been compacted, so it will be fluffy and not performing to it's full potential. Please continue to treat these bunkers as "Ground Under Repair" for the remainder of the year. As per the rules for "Ground Under Repair," you may play your ball out of the new bunker if you desire. Thank you.
As communicated previously, the bunker renovation project is underway. Once construction has begun on a bunker, it will be played as
“Ground Under Repair.” Please contact the Golf Shop for assistance or questions
you may have regarding the treatment of ground under repair.
To meet our overall renovation deadline, the contractors will not stop
working when play approaches the work area like what is typically done with our
staff here at Exmoor. For instance, if machines working in the greenside bunker
on hole #1 would cease to work and wait for each group to putt out, their
efficiency would decrease significantly, causing the project to fall behind
schedule. Members and their guests are encouraged to please keep playing while
equipment and crews are working.
Our team will be
observing outside contractors as best we can and will address issues as may arise. Please do not hesitate to reach out to
me directly with any questions or concerns.
Thank your for your understanding and patience as we
proceed through the bunker improvement project.
Thanks and take care,
Golf Course Superintendent
