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
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

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

welcome in this event. For more details
