WHY CAN'T WE HAVE CARTS ON THE NORTH COURSE EARLIER IN THE SPRING?
Turfgrass still in winter dormancy has difficulty recovering from mechanical damage like cart traffic. Until the turf is showing signs of growth - and thus the ability to recover - we prefer to keep carts off the golf courses.
Our opportunity to provide excellent conditions later in the season will be enhanced if we limit the traffic damage incurred in the spring. We will allow carts as soon as possible. We are all anxious to get outside and enjoy the weather.
