SaddleBrooke Course and Practice Facility Close on Monday, September 21st

The barn is stocked with seed and the golf maintenance team is ready for overseed 2020. SaddleBrooke and the practice facility will be first to close and be seeded. We ask that during the first 2 weeks a course is shut down, that walkers refrain from walking on the golf course. This is for their safety and the safety of the new seed that has been put down. We appreciate everyones cooperation during this time.

Tucson Bunker Project Update

The golf maintenance team has been working hard to finish the bunkers on Tucson. Work includes removing the old sand, refreshing the drainage, new bunker liner, and new sand. Bunkers are being marked as ground under repair as the old sand is removed. All of the old sand has been removed from the remaining bunkers. The large fairway bunker and the 2 green side bunkers on Tucson #6 are now open for play. The team is working on the green side bunker on Tucson #7 and the last 2 bunkers on Tucson #6.

Cattail Removal Tucson #4 Upper Pond

 Solitude Lake Management will be here to start on Saturday with their hydro- rake to remove the cattails from the pond on Tucson #4. Hydro-raking is an effective technique for selective removal of nuisance, rooted vegetation. The hydro - rake is best described as a floating barge with a backhoe mounted and with several different size and functioning rake attachments. This offers an environmental friendly solution as no water restrictions are required as no chemicals will be used.
