Staying off weak collars...please walk around

With the amount of traffic we will see on the golf course this season, certain areas are very susceptible to wear. Collars around the greens are especially sensitive.

Signs have been posted to ask members to walk around these areas either well onto the green or on the bluegrass rough.

These collar areas will always be sensitive to traffic and will be closely monitored. Please do your best to avoid walking through with a pull cart & placing your golf bag down.

The little extra walk will help keep our collars healthy & strong.
