It’s time for Overseeding, but Wait What is Overseeding?

closed-for-overseeding-01

Some of you may ask, what is overseeding and why do we overseed our golf course? Overseeding is to seed an existing stand with another type of plant. In this case our Bermuda grass golf course will be overseeded with Rye grass. Why? The reasons golf courses overseed their grass is to transition the course through different seasons and climate temperatures throughout the year so that the grass stays in great playing condition year around.

Bermuda grass thrives in weather warmer than eighty degrees or more at night as where Rye grass is meant for cooler weather. Our goal is to make sure our golf course is in the best shape for you and ready to play year around. This way you and your friends or family have the best playing experience possible. Hopefully you and your guests can appreciate the beautiful landscape of our course and the amazing views of the McDowell Mountains.

For 2018, our course & practice facility will be closed from Monday, October 1st through Tuesday, October 16th.  Our course will reopen for play starting on Wednesday, October 17th. We look forward to seeing you on our freshly overseeded emerald green course when we re-open for play!

In the mean-time our restaurant, the Mesquite Grille will be open at 3:00 p.m. (Monday – Thursday) for happy hour and dinner, and (Friday – Sunday) from 11:00 a.m. for you to enjoy your favorite sporting events and adult beverages.
