It is with great pleasure that we announce that we will be re-opening for public play on Tuesday, September 23rd, with the first available tee time at 8:30am and the last tee time at 5:30pm. This will be a "soft" opening, as we finalize our Grand Re-Opening Celebration in early October. Please be on the look out for an email with more details concerning the Grand Re-Opening Celebration. 

For the first few week once we re-open, please note that we will be "Cart Path Only". We want to give the newly laid sod time to take root and really flourish before we release carts onto the golf course completely.

Again, thank you for your support and patience and we will see you soon!
