Another exciting year of Fun, Family, and Friendliness at Scottsdale golf club

First and foremost, on behalf of the Agronomy Department I would like to welcome back our membership for another exciting year of Fun, Family, and Friendliness. I have received many positive comments regarding the great playing conditions of Scottsdale golf club. “The rough is fantastic, it definitely makes the course much more difficult” to “The pin locations have been really good and different since opening day.” Along with the higher cut of rough this year the fairways were shaped much different than in past years to create more angles on each hole. These are a few of the changes you will see around the Scottsdale golf club this season.

Another positive for the Scottsdale golf course is we have recently hired three new staff members to complete our new desert landscape team. This is something that I have been trying to put together for a few years, so to say that I am very excited to have a dedicated team to maintain the surrounding desert areas on the golf course is an understatement.

On to my next topic…FROST. November has brought some unseasonable cooler weather this year. We have had a few cool mornings with some frost already. This was not what I was hoping for this early in the season. Frost can be very damaging to the turf grass and we want to make sure we are taking all the precautions to preserve the density and consistency of the golf course playing conditions, and minimize any risk of turf damage. We ask for your patience during these times.

Lastly, here is a friendly reminder to everyone of “The Pride of Ownership Program” here at Scottsdale golf course.

Please repair all ball marks.

Please enter/exit bunkers in the lowest area possible.

Please fill all divots with the sand/seed mix provided by the staff.

Please drive carts on fairways.

Please keep push carts in designated areas on the Scottsdale golf course.

Please rake bunker after each shot.

Thank you all for your help with using these simple golf course etiquette practices!
