SOUTH COURSE - PRACTICE FACILITY
The North side of the practice facility will be closed today from 7:30am - 12:00pm. During this closure the Maintenance team will be spraying to eradicate the current turf in preperation for the renovation. Once the chemical (similar to Round-Up) is dry the practice tee will open for use. The grass will turn yellow following this application and will remain open until construction begins. The South side of the practice facility will be available for use throughout the renovation process.
