The Saints has begun a maintenance program for the golf course that will extend into the summer. This program consists of cultural practices designed to improve the course, specifically by enhancing soil conditions.
Over the next several months, golfers can expect to see work being performed daily in the roughs surrounding the fairways, greens and tees. Several types of cultural techniques will be employed including scalping, verticutting, and aerifying. All of these practices are designed to renew and improve the turf and soil. Once the roughs have been completed, work will commence on the playing areas— the fairways and tees.
The golf course will remain open during this entire process, with the exception of when the greens are aerified. A separate notification will be given when a definite date is chosen for aerifying the greens. The course will be closed for one day for aerification, and it will re-open the following day.
Conducting these type of maintenance operations during the summer months is the industry standard, and the Saints staff is excited to complete this necessary work that will significantly enhance playing conditions.
In most cases the disruption to your play will be minimal and isolated to a few holes at a time. Obviously, unavoidable disruption will occur when the greens are aerified. During the week following the aerification, the Saints will be offering special pricing while the greens heal from that process.
The Saints Golf Course and Pro Shop are located at 2601 S.E. Morningside Blvd.
