Hole 9 soaking up the sun

The weather forecast for the next several days is looking good for golf. The greens have healed up pretty well and are rolling decently. It would be a great time to get out and enjoy a round at Sandpines. We have a fantastic $39 special (includes cart) going on right now for Oregon and Washington residents. Use the coupons on the image below to receive the special pricing.

I have been receiving a number of questions about the project going on near the 8 tee complex. We are working on a new tee to the left of the cart path. The teeing areas that are the most heavily utilized are small and get chewed up rather quickly. Currently, the tees are either kept on the chewed up areas or are pushed back to a longer yardage in order give the divots a chance to fill in. The plan is to add more tee space with a similar yardage, which will also provide a different perspective. This project also gives us a chance to use some of the abundance of sand that has accumulated behind the tee complex. The picture below gives a sneak peek of what a future tee shot might look like. We still have a ways to go before the project is complete. At this point we do not have a time frame for the completion of the project, but I will keep you posted.

If you have played lately, you may have noticed the white dots near the edges of the collars. The dots indicate where the green/collar edge should be. As we mow the greens over the course of the year, the edges have a tendency to creep in or out a little. The dots are just a guide we use when mowing to get our collar width more consistent.
