Keeping Collars Strong
No Pull Carts or Golf Bags between Green and Bunkers

With the amount of traffic collars on greens see throughout the season, we remind members not to pull carts or place golf bags on the collar. Collars are especially sensitive to traffic due to their small size. Where possible, walk around these areas either well onto the green or on the bluegrass rough.

Signs may be posted as a reminder to membership.
The little extra walk will help keep our collars healthy & strong.
