new Scottsdale Golf Club summer offerings can be found later in this newsletter, and please stay tuned for more great offerings from the Scottsdale Golf Club In an effort to provide as much information to our members as possible about the operations, we will utilize a portion of our upcoming summer publications to continue with the “Did You Know” column made famous by Paul Skelton in the past.

Scottsdale Country Club Summer Golf Events
To start the summer season, we wanted to keep you apprised of some of the Scottsdale Private Golf Courses  agronomy practices which are in process, or will happen in the fall. A number of Scottsdale Private Golf Courses   have watched as the tee leveling project started on hole #1. This will continue for 9-10 weeks, finishing with the black/blue tee on #18.

Scottsdale Private Golf Courses  goal is to level the tee surfaces as some of the edges have fallen and the amount of tee space has been greatly reduced. Our plan to offset this is to strip the appropriate tees, install a heavy metal support band, refill with material, level it, and re-sod and grow it back in.

Each Scottsdale Private Golf Courses  tee has been evaluated for the amount of repair required. There are some worse than others, and some that require little to no maintenance. Because of this, we are evaluating each Scottsdale Private Golf Courses
   tee one at a time, and making the appropriate repairs then and there. On the right, you’ll notice several stages of the work.

We will continue to have the course open for play and will be moving tee markers around as need be. The USGA officials we are aligned with say this tee movement will not have any effect on your handicap.

Please take a few minutes to read these updates with information about upcoming Scottsdale Country Club events, and golf course conditions.

US Open/Men’s Day

On Saturday June 17th, there will be an 8:00am shotgun start for our Scottsdale Country Club Men’s Day event. There will also be an 8:00am Open Play shotgun for member play. There will be another open play shotgun at 1:00pm.

Sign-Ups for these are open on Scottsdale Country Club Foretees.

The Practice Green on the south side of the practice park has closed because it has been treated with chemicals to kill of the existing Bermuda Grass. We will be replacing the Bermuda Grass with a brand new strain of G12 Champion Bermuda. The green should be playable by early September.

Greens Aerification

We will be aerifiying our greens on July 10th and 11th. The Scottsdale Country Club Golf Course and Practice Facilities will be closed on July 10th. The Golf Course and practice greens will remain closed on the 11th, but the Scottsdale Country Club Practice Range will be open. The Golf Course and practice greens will reopen on July 12th.
