SaddleBrooke Bunker Sand Replacement
The golf maintenance team is working on finishing the second bunker on SaddleBrooke #2 this week. Once the team is complete the bunker will be back into play. The new sand will be soft for a period as it settles in. The team will continue with the project next week. Any bunkers the golf maintenance team is working in will be marked as ground under repair.
Winter Cultural Practices
Starting this month, the golf maintenance team will begin to perform some winter cultural practices. This is to ensure we continue to have good water and air infiltration into the soil profile to produce healthy turf. These practices also help to relieve soil compaction. These practices will include:
All Courses Open to Regular Cart Traffic
Gate System Reminders:
"No Cart Zone" Reminders
Example of "No Cart Zone" on Catalina #1
"No Cart Zones" are in effect on all courses open to cart traffic
As cart traffic returns to the courses after overseeding the "No Cart Zones" will also be returning. All cart traffic is restricted in these areas. These areas will provide a visual yellow line that should not be crossed by any golf cart, including "Medical Flag Carts" . This system will improve on course safety and course conditioning.
* A yellow line will designate the "NO CART ZONE" on each hole
* The gates must still be used by all carts
* Fairway cart signs should still be used as the proper location to exit the fairway and return to the cart path
*Sad #2, Cat #5, Cat #6, and Cat #8 will not have lines due to limited space and/or steep slopes. All carts should remain on the path when around these specific green complexes or holes if it is a par 3.
Thank you for your cooperation as we work to improve golf course safety and enhance course conditioning.

Frost Delay Information
Cooler weather has started to arrive and with it comes the need for frost delays. Frost delays are necessary to protect the turf grass from damage and limit exposure to unsafe conditions on the courses. Please use the frost delay hotline to receive daily updates on potential delays.
