Weekly Golf Update -August 14
August 14 - August 21

Aeration Update from Josh Saunders

After a picture perfect aerification week; we were able to complete the process on greens, tees and approaches.  Everyone should be excited at what the remainder of the season now has in store.   

Another accomplishment of the week was that we utilized the
harvested cores from playing surfaces to address the cart path edges on the course wide project this past spring.  Focus was placed around greens and tees; but I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the progress throughout the property on the overall improvement in safety and aesthetics.  

With that being said; I wanted to ask that everyone uses caution over the next couple of weeks to increase the chances of establishment.  Unfortunately, we do not have enough rope line and stakes to deter all traffic, but would encourage and plead with everyone to keep their carts on the paths at all times around tees and greens.  When exiting or entering cart paths, please try to avoid driving through any of the newly seeded and dirt areas.   

If we can all work together; then the final piece of a large overdue project will be completed to improve the overall experience for you and your guests.  As always, I thank  you for your cooperation and continued support in making Longue Vue a better place.

Til next time, I looks forward to seeing you on the course!  
Respectfully,  
Josh A. Saunders and the Greens Staff 


 
 

Upcoming Men's Events        
                     

Men's Par Three Challenge
Saturday, August 19
The Par 3 Challenge is new this season.  This event will see all of our holes turned into par 3’s for the event.  Each hole will feature a hole-in-one contest with prize values ranging up to $10,000.  There will also be a closest to the pin contest each hole (this will be in two handicap groups 12 & under and 13 & over).  There is no putting/holing out in this event (it is scheduled the week after summer greens aeration).  The idea is to get groups around in less than two and a half hours – finishing in time for the dinner that will be included in your entry fee.  Guests will be welcome in this event.  For more details please click here or see the flyers posted around the club.
