Update from the Superintendent:
The course will be closed Monday, February 27th for green aerification. The greens should be back to normal within 10-14 days if weather permits.
Spraying has been completed for weed control on the entire course including spot spraying and areas outside the fences.
The grounds-keeping crew is continuing to trim up trees in the deep, rough areas.
The crew has cleaned up the area behind the #1 green.
They are also preparing to add 4-5 new sprinklers in areas that are in need of them as well as sod for the new #13 tee box.
News from the Pro Shop:
SPECIAL DEAL: Ping hats for $16 and Pro V1 & Pro V1X golf balls for $40 per dozen.
FREE GREEN FEE AERIFICATION SPECIAL: The course is running a special for a FREE green fee (February 28 – March 2 only) with the purchase of a golf cart rental.

News from the Board of Directors:
CALL FOR SOCIAL COMMITTEE VOLUNTEERS: We are extending the invitation to members to have the chance to become involved with the Prairie West social committee to organize events at the club house like picnics, fundraisers, and other family and couples events. If you are interesting in helping plan or execute events, contact PWGC Board of Directors Chairman, Bruce Magill.
Although the new club house is pretty close to being finished, we are preparing to add some appliances to complete the catering prep kitchen.
Also, you can expect to see driving range yardage markers being installed with a sign that will key out the exact yardage for each colored flag. Stay tuned for more details on this!
