Important Golf Course Information
Golf Course Grass Over-seeding
The club will be over-seeding areas of the golf course in preparation for the cooler months ahead. The course will be closed on Monday, October 31st for preparations. The actual seeding of the course will take place on the following day, Tuesday, November 1st. The golf course will be open on Tuesday, however, during the grass seed germination and establishing period, golfers can expect regular watering throughout all times of the day. We appreciate your understanding.
Magnolia Tree Removal
We received several questions about the removal of a magnolia tree that was bordering the new pool. We discovered that the magnolia tree’s roots were badly compromising a main irrigation line. We made the decision to remove the tree to avoid serious problems in the future. The club installed fourteen trees around the clubhouse as part of the renovation projects.
The club’s Practice Hole, also referred to as Hole Red #9, sees lots of golf activity. In recent weeks the green has been seeing an unusual amount of golf ball pitch marks that go unrepaired on the greens. Please help us by repairing any ball marks on all of our club putting surfaces.
Beginning October 24th, we will be closing Hole #7 for approximately one week while the Dream Finders construction staff works in that area of the property. We will be putting, the Practice Hole, Red 9 into the course rotation until the work is complete. Please check with the pro shop for additional information and updates.
Recently, Hurricane Matthew left the course and many residents with tree debris. The club’s maintenance staff is still in the process of completing the clean-up. Our staff will not be moving any course debris onto homeowner property. We also kindly ask and appreciate the help of our golf course neighbors to not place any residential debris on golf course property. As always, we appreciate the help of our golf course neighbors.
Golf Course Access
In recent weeks, we have seen another increase in non-golf related activity and golf cart traffic on the golf course. Just last night, someone drove across the 16th putting green several times causing damage. We ask for everyone’s help; please report anyone on the course that should not be there. The golf course is club property and the only time anyone is allowed on the golf course is when they have registered with the pro shop to play golf. This is a serious problem for the club and we ask that you call the club to report any violations. If it is after hours, please leave a message on the pro shop phone or call the police.
Please know, accessing the course, to play a few holes without registering, is not permissible. As stated in the Member Handbook, all non-golf activities on the golf course and cart paths are prohibited, including, but not limited to, jogging, bicycling, skating, walking dogs, and non-golf related travel in golf carts. No fishing is permitted from the active golf course or adjacent areas.
The closed holes, also referred to as the Red Nine, is an area of the property that can be used for walking, fishing and other such activities that are not allowed on the active golf course. Because this is a nature area, we do not maintain cart paths and many other areas on this part of the property, though we do pay the HOA management company to keep the grass mowed. It is important to know that any activity on this area of the property is done so at the own risk of those individuals. We appreciate your understanding and hope you enjoy the natural setting these areas provide.
