A Reminder: Starting the week of the 4th of July, we are changing our maintenance closures to a two-week cycle. The first two weeks of July, Ironwood will be closed. We then rotate to Persimmon for the next two weeks and continue this two-week rotation through the Fall overseed. This two-week schedule allows us to do the more disruptive, heavy maintenance work required and gives the course a short period of recovery prior to reopening for play.

 

We will continue to forward maintenance progress reports throughout the summer. As always, if you have questions, feel free to write the Committee at anthemgreens@icloud.com
