Course Opening

We keep records of every Opening and Closing date of the golf courses. History tells us that we have opened the North Course as early as March 6th (2000) and as late as March 28th (2006). The South Course typically opens between the 1st and the 15th of April.

The following is taken from the Golf Course Standards:
The North Course greens will open once the subsurface has thawed to the level that damage will not occur to the turf. Minor damage – at the discretion of the Golf Course Manager, General Manager and Green Committee - may be deemed acceptable if member accessibility is a consideration. Historically this has occurred between the third week of March and the first week of April.
