For many years the biggest complaint about our golf course was the condition of the bunkers. Well, we took the concerns of our guests and members to heart and over the past two winters have renovated most all of them. We have spent tens of thousands of dollars rebuilding the bunkers to make them playable and enjoyable and have spent hundreds of dollars on bunker rakes so they could be maintained throughout the day by golfers.
We have been blessed with great weather this spring and with that has come an incresed number of rounds on the golf course. The maintenance staff does a great job of maintaining the golf course but some of the upkeep falls on the shoulders of the golfers who enjoy it. Raking the bunkers when you have finished playing out of them is just part of the game and we would greatly appreciate a little help in keeping the golf course in the top condition that we like to see it in.
In addition to the bunkers, please keep in mind to fix your ball marks and fill your divots. Each golf car is outfitted with two sand bottles and we have refilling stations on #6, #10, and #14 if you run out of sand. Ball marks are becoming an issue on the greens as well, if you need a ball mark repair tool just let me know and I will get you one. I encourage every golfer to view and follow the techniques demonstrated in the United States Golf Association video on Repairing Ball Marks.
For our many members and guests who do take pride in the golf course we say THANK YOU!!!
Remember The Bear Trace at Harrison Bay is your golf course, treat it with respect.
