CAREY PARK GOLF COURSE
The sun is out, flowers are in bloom and the grass is turning green. Golf season is finally here and we are excited to welcome back all our golfing friends, many of whom we haven’t seen in a few months. With the warm weather and recent rain, the whole course will be growing and the fairways are greening up earlier than expected!! Some of the regular maintenance scheduled for this year will include; aerification of greens and fairways, frequent vertical mowing and light topdressing on the greens this year per the USGA recommendation last fall. Greens will be aerified on Monday May 8th and Tuesday May 9th. Fairways will be aerified this summer, as usual. We understand this can be an inconvenience but aerification is necessary to promote air and water exchange for a healthier root system. Working with other divisions in the city, we removed the dead cottonwood from hole 17 and planted several other trees on the course from the City’s tree nursery.
Students from several local schools are making their way out to practice in preparation for the beginning of their spring season. We wish them all the best of luck.
Our successful Junior Golf Program will be returning this year with clinics and camps. We are also pleased to announce that we will now be hosting PGA Junior League.
