Dear Golfers of Oxford Greens,
Starting Tuesday July 5th, the maintenance team will be addressing some issues of wear throughout select fairways and tee boxes on the golf course. The fairway areas we will be addressing are the first two cart entrance points on the 3rd hole, the thin fairway area on the 3rd hole adjacent to the second entrance point, and the right hillside on hole #11 just short of the bunker. These areas will be stripped and new sod will be applied. The areas will be closed until the new grass is rooted and will be marked as “ground under repair” as defined by the USGA.
We will also be addressing some challenged tee boxes before they become unplayable by closing those tee boxes to allow for core aeration, in which we will fill and top dress with divot mix and seed. We will use fertilizer throughout the healing process to allow for a speedy recovery. The tees that will be effected are the right white tees on hole #9, hole #13 both white and blue tee boxes, hole # 16 white and blue tee boxes, and hole #15 both white tees.
The tee box closures will result in some tee boxes playing longer or shorter than the USGA course ratings listed on the scorecards. Individuals using the USGA handicap system for handicapped matches are recommended to use the chart found in the USGA Handicap Manual in section 5.2-G. If any players needs assistance in implementing the chart or have any questions please contact a member of the golf professional staff.
