Winter is finally here. It's snow fence time!

Winter finally came!  The golf season was extended a extra month with the abnormal warm weather, but finally the cold weather is here to slow down the golf course.  We adapted to the late season keeping the course open for as long as possible.  With the cold weather arriving, we have winterized the on-course bathrooms, removed all tee markers, ball washers, directions signs and bunker rakes.  As always, we have installed over 1.5 miles of snow fence on the course.  We do not install the snow fence to intentionally affect your golf game.  We install the snow fence to trap snow on the course to help preserve the grass over the harsh winter months.    Being in a high desert climate and a very windy site,  we need to make sure the grass stays covered to avoid any winter dissecation.   The harder we work in the winter months keeping the grass healthy, the better we come out allowing for great condtions in the spring.  Here are a few photos of the snow fence and the local wildlife.
