Catalina Course Closed For 1 More Week
The golf maintenance team is off to a great start on the Catalina course closure. Aerification of the greens was completed. They now have another full week to recover before the course re-opens. The picture below shows a close up of how they look after the aerification. The rough has been core aerified. The second application of fairway topdressing was started and will be completed next week. The tees will be top-dressed and aerified next week as well.

"No Cart Zone" Reminders

No_cart_zone_example

Example of "No Cart Zone" on Catalina #1

"No Cart Zones" are in effect on all courses

  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.

Reminders:

* A yellow line will designate the "NO CART ZONE" on each hole

*Gates must still be used for exiting the fairways.

* 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.
