Golf Course Superintendent’s Update 11/3/17

I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful color on all our trees.  We have had a very late leaf season due to above-average fall temperatures.  Many trees are simply turning from green to brown and the leafs fall off.

Our Hispanics finish their season at the club today.  They have been wonderful to work with and wonderful for the golf course.  Having the same trained guys back from 2016 was a major boost to start the 2017 season off quickly.  Our winter season staff will consist of two men on the course, our mechanic, and myself.  We will continue to clean up leafs and mow turf that is still growing.

My goal for the off season is to send out a monthly update, so please be looking for these.  My staff thanks each of you for a very successful 2017 golf season.

Logan H. Nesbitt, Golf Course Superintendent

Thank you so much for hosting “The Mutt” Catamount Football Classic golf outing in October.  A great time was had by all our donors and fans!  We truly appreciate the time and effort you made to make the event a success!  The success of these golf outings in terms of fundraising dollars directly impact our Student-Athletes at WCU and the mission of the Catamount Club.

We loved being able to set up in the pavilion for registration and then dinner.  Everyone said the greens were in great shape and that they enjoyed the course.  They also loved the coffee, lunch and dinner!  Thanks again for all you do! ~Miffy Henley, Assistant Director, Catamount Club, WCU Athletics, 11/2/17

Beautiful Location!

“Beautiful location! The setting was perfect for a mountain wedding. I especially enjoyed watching the deer crossing the fairway while waiting for the ceremony to start.”~Jessica Erin 10/30/17
