Winter Protection

We have begun the process of installing snow fencing at several key locations on the golf course. Most of these areas fall on the upper portion of the course that has the greatest exposure risk.

The fencing can be found around all of the practice area greens as well as the first and second greens. Additionally some of the tees and bunker faces on the first two holes are also protected.

The purpose of the fence is to help hold snow in place on these critical areas so that desiccation does not occur. These are some of the first areas in which turf loss occurs, if adequate moisture levels are not maintained throughout the winter season.
