Starting November 1, our 27-hole golf course will be reduced to our 18-hole winter course.
Call 719-636-2520 for frost conditions prior to your start times and for snow delay updates.
From our Superintendent:
FROST…the dreaded five-letter word. Frost is basically frozen dew that has crystallized on the grass, making it hard and brittle. Walking on frost-covered grass causes the plant to break and cell walls to rupture, thereby losing its ability to function normally. Damage in the fall is always worse because the plants do not have enough time to recover as they enter the winter.
It is imperative that we wait for frost to burn off before we begin maintenance or allow play on the golf course. To help with the inevitable frost delays we will be moving tee times to 8:30 in October. Our goal is to get players out on the course as early as possible but with the shorter days the frost tends to last longer into the morning hours.
Waiting out the frost before your round this time of year will help the course enter the winter in much better health which leads to a healthier spring. The maintenance staff will stay in contact with the golf staff to inform you when the course is ready for play. Thank you for your cooperation.
