Prairie West Golf Club Members and Friends,
As March comes to an end, we have been fortunate to have had some beautiful days to get out and play some golf this month! With the season underway, we'd like to inform you of some news and several events taking place at the course.
The golf course has miscellaneous leftover furniture, counters, cabinets, and other surplus items that came out of the old clubhouse. These items are “well-used” and not of enough value to justify an auction. On Friday morning, March 31st through noon on Saturday, April 1st, this surplus material will be placed on the south side of the maintenance barn near the west parking lot. Members of the Prairie West Golf Club are welcome to come and take items free of charge. Whatever is left on Saturday at noon will be donated to charity. If you have questions, contact Phil or Patrick at the clubhouse.
Update from the Superintendent
The course will be closed Friday, March 31st until 2 p.m. for the High School Boys Large School Tournament.
The spraying earlier in the spring has killed most of the ryegrass in the fairways. The ryegrass near the greens will be sprayed later when more Bermuda has grown in and stabilized the soil.
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.
The greens are almost 100% healed from the spring Aerification.
