What’s New for 2017

We are excited to announce some improvements to play-ability for the 2017 season. Ed Michaud and his crew have been hard at work this winter clearing and cutting back fescue, and cutting a number of trees down on the course. Slowly over time trees, fescue and underbrush can creep in on the fairways and open areas of a course negatively impacting play-ability for a mid to high handicap golfer. It is our goal to make the course more accessible to golfers of all skill levels while adhering to the design philosophy that created the top rated course we all love.

Here is a hole by hole overview of changes over the winter.
