As we get closer to closing day for both the Incline Village Mountain and Championship Golf Courses (Oct. 7 & 21 respectively), our groundskeeping teams will be ramping up their maintenance work with the aim of prepping the courses for the winter ahead and ensuring great conditions next season and in years to come. In the interest of giving our customers as much advance notice as possible, Jeff Clouthier, our Grounds Superintendent, has put together the following fall maintenance schedule. 

2018 Golf Course Fall Maintenance Schedule (subject to change)

bunker work

Week of September 17

  • Aerate Championship Course tees 
  • Begin renovation of Mountain Course #15 bunkers

Week of September 24

  • Starting on Monday, September 24, Championship Course #17 tee will be closed for the rest of the season to allow for renovation of the tee surface.  Work will include expansion and realignment of the Black, Blue, White and Gold tees to allow for the maximum amount of tee space.  All golfers will use the Green/Red tees for the remainder of the season.
  • Aerate Championship Course tees 
  • Aerate Mountain Course fairways and approaches
  • Bunker work on both courses 

Week of October 1

There will be bunker and tee improvements, as well as several small drainage projects happening on the golf courses throughout the rest of the season that may slightly affect play at certain times.  This may result in moving of tee markers and bunkers being placed as “Ground Under Repair” as work progresses.  The starter will inform golfers of activity to be aware of each day.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to improve the golf courses for the future and prepare them for winter! Check back this winter and spring for more course updates.

Reshaping the tee box on Championship Course hole #17 .

Working on compacted soil on Championship Course hole #15 using plugs pulled from other tee boxes around the course. This is a good cultural practice that reuses soil we pull from one area to treat another with no extra costs for materials.
