It has been an interesting season at Lake Monterey Golf Course as well as at the park. There were many spring projects that were put on hold because of COVID-19. But we will work on them this fall and next spring.
The tree work done this past winter on both nines has gotten the thumbs up from the members after a whole season of play. It has made the back nine more playable and has increased play on that side as well.
The new well has helped to improve the turf on the front nine and really made a big difference in July with all the hot, dry weather that we had.
The Member/Guest and the Chris Simmons outings were full and went extremely well. Hopefully, we can get back to a more normal golf calendar next year with events such as the Nine/Dine, Wine Pairings, Mother/Child, and Father/ Child Outings. We will also build on our cornhole leagues.
The course itself saw once again an increase in member play and a little increase in public play. The member play has increased a lot over the last two years. Which is great for the course but as the prime times are getting filled more by member play, we may start to see the public players on weekends become less. The members have really embraced the improved course condition and are now bringing more guests to play and show off the course which is great too.
Our staff would like to thank all the volunteers for all their help this past season with events and the Kids Golf League. Special thanks to Kim Bore for running the Kid’s League. Also, to Larry and Lois Mugford for doing to the gardens on one and three tee boxes.
