With the 2018 season coming to blistery halt, I wanted to take the time to let you know what has been going on at Cross Creek Golf Club the past few months. As most of you know, there has been a lot of changes going on within the Cross Creek organization. There are new board members, a new board president, and there will be a new Golf Course Superintendent. (That’s me!!)
First, I would like to thank the new board members for giving me a chance to take over the operations outside at Cross Creek. This course has been a home to me for many years, and I look forward to keep pushing this course to its fullest potential and to the best of my abilities. So that our great golf community can continue to have a nice course to play, and hopefully be proud to have Cross Creek be their home.
With an abnormal year of weather. Going from winter to summer, and back to winter again. It was a difficult season for turfgrass. It wasn’t only CCGC that had troubles, but many area courses had troubles as well.
In the last couple months, our goal has been to start getting ready for next year. Trying to tackle as many projects as possible so that we can try and be one step ahead of what 2019 might bring so that we can hope for a June opening of the new holes. That’s right, CCGC is becoming a 27 hole facility. The time that we have put in lately on the new holes and the existing course has me feeling very positive that the renovation of Cross Creek is going to be great for our members. There is still a long road, but over the next few months I look forward to the challenge of keeping us all on the same timeline goal.
I’m starting this blog because I want to keep our members informed with what is going on at CCGC. Everyone has there concerns, and I hope that this blog will allow me to explain why we do things a certain way. That way everybody including members and employees are on the same page and have more of an understanding. I hope to keep you informed on not only daily play and events, but project updates and future plans.
Thank you for your time, thank you for coming along on this journey!
