Golf Course Superintendent’s Update 10/13/17

So far, fall has been a continuance of summer for 2017.  We almost reached record high temperatures on Wednesday and expect above average temperatures through the weekend.  It has been excellent growing weather for the grass seed that we have around the golf course as well as a beautiful leaf season.  The hurricane rain on […]

Golf Course Superintendent’s Update 10/6/17

I hope everyone had a wonderful week.  Our weather has been extremely dry lately, however, rain is forecasted starting Saturday night.  We have some grass seed around the course that would appreciate the additional moisture.  With the annual Piedmont Cup currently going on, I want to say thank you for obeying the signage around the […]

Golf Course Superintendent’s Update 9/8/17

What a week!  Aerification is always a challenging time for members and staff, but a welcome relief for the stressed turf from a busy summer.  We started aerification on Tuesday and made great progress.  The rain late Tuesday and into Wednesday really slowed things.  Damp sand and a wet golf course keeps things interesting.  We […]

It Was A Pleasure To Stay & Play at Laurel Ridge

Spacious, clean, well designed and tastefully furnished. The service – including the staff, the rooms, the dining room and the pros […]
