Course Update - Tuesday, August 9
Hello Willow Creek Members!
We are so excited as we near the end of bunker renovation and could not be more thrilled for the entire course to be open and ready for "normal" play. We are currently finishing up #5 bunkers and then working our way to #6-8. The contractors are continuing to work hard to lay the sod down on #1, #2, and #18 to get everything where it needs to be. Repairs on #13 cart path will begin shortly meaning that we will no longer have a detour for you guys and things will be getting back to normal.
Monday the greens, fairways, and tees were aerified. The process of healing will get the course conditions back to normal in the next few weeks. Aerification is a mechanical process that creates more air space in the soil and promotes deeper rooting, thus helping the plants stay healthy. This practice achieves three important objectives. It relieves soil compaction, it provides a method to improve the soil mixture around the highest part of a green's roots and it reduces or prevents the accumulation of excess thatch. We appreciate your patience with this and hope you understand that this will only make the course that much better!
Our Charity Classic Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, August 19 at 1 pm with dinner and auctions beginning at 6 pm. This year the club chose to donate the proceeds to Camp Hope, a PTSD organization located in Houston. The proceeds will also be going to two other great organizations: Augies Quest, ALS Research, and The Employee Partner Care Foundation. If you have not yet signed up, we would love to hear from you!
