LPN Golf Course Prepped for Winter

The LPN golf course will remain open for play as long as weather and course turf conditions permit. Routine winter maintenance is being completed, in an annual effort to protect our turfgrass during the winter and ensure course conditions are optimal next spring.

A preventive snow mold application and heavy top dressing has been completed on all greens. The top dressing will remain on the greens over the winter to protect the blades of grass by not exposing the crown of the plant. Even though the course is open, the top dressing is required for our greens and will help limit damage to the plant’s crown caused by foot traffic.

The course now is CART PATH ONLY. All golf carts must remain on cart paths during your round, plus as you travel to and from the course. The irrigation system has been shut down for the winter, so it is important golf cart traffic remain off the turf. Remember — golf cart tracks made in November still will be visible in the spring.

We hope the weather provides more days of golf between now and spring, and we ask everyone’s help protecting our turf during the winter months,
