Prairie West Golf Club Members and Friends,
As mentioned in the first “Long Drive from Prairie West” email last week, the golf course Board of Directors and golf course staff are striving to keep our membership and friends better informed. Our plan is to send out a couple of email messages each month.
Golf season will be here before you know it, and we were lucky to have several nice golf days in January. Here are some bits of news from the course that we hope you will find useful as you plan your outings.
Update from the Superintendent:
Our grounds-keeping crew is busy at work preparing the course for the upcoming season. They are working on trimming trees and cleaning up the deep rough area under trees to improve grass growth in these areas. Special attention will be given to the area behind number 1 green and work continues throughout the course on the sprinkler system. As the weather allows, the crew will be getting ready to spray pre-emergent chemicals. Aerification of the greens is set to begin on Monday, February 27.
News from the Pro Shop:
There are several great dates available for your tournament or for your social/business events. Contact the Prairie West Golf Club pro shop (580-772-3832) to reserve the course or meeting rooms.
It's time to start signing up for the MGA! The cost is $60 which includes GHIN handicap and entry into 5 tournaments. Handicaps must be established by April 1st in order to be able to play in the April 15th MGA Tournament.

If you know someone who might be interested in playing golf here in Weatherford, pass along this link so they can see some of the course. (We plan to add a fly-over view of the course later in the spring when it greens up!)
