Speed Kills, Not Just Grass But Enjoyment In Round




Higher greens speeds 10-11' and higher increases stress levels in 1/8" tall bent grass and increases risks for potential turf loss on greens. 

New studies links faster green speeds to longer play time and less enjoyment/satisfaction in the experience. See the research below.

Veteran's Day 2017

This year takes on a special meaning to this day with the passing of Beth's brother Lawrence Brewer this past April. He proudly served his country in the Air Force in Vietnam. To all of our members, families and friends who served and or currently serving, I appreciate the sacrifices you made for all of us.

Firewood For Sale

That time of year to burn some wood in outdoor pits or fireplaces. We sell oak firewood for $ 75.00 self service pick up load or $ 100 delivered. Deliveries are usually delayed until after Thanksgiving since the staff is busy chasing leaves and we are at reduced staffing levels. Deliveries are only made on week days. You do not have to be there for us to deliver as long as we have a spot worked out ahead of time to stack.

If you have a small SUV or car and want a small load, we usually adjust the price down accordingly. If you need assistance with loading, our staff can help out. There are there 7 am to 2:30 pm Monday thru Friday. The pickup load price is for about `175 pieces more or less. You can contact my phone at 314-575-7321 or shoot me an email.

The pile we are currently using as you drive down past the maintenance building is on the left side of the driveway. It has been there for 2 years and has been burning nicely in the fire pits up on the patio over the last couple of months. Once that is all gone we will begin to use the right side which is a bit  newer wood but has been on the ground since at least last winter.

Your account is charged once we deliver or you pick up the wood.

Grass Range Tees

The grass range tees have closed for the year. The artificial mats are now open for your use. With the hard freezes over the weekend, the turf has stopped growing until next spring. No growth means no way to repair from damage. Please be considerate and STAY OFF THE GRASS!!! Please

Deep Tine Aeration, Why do we do it?

Made a video explaining why we deep tine aerate our greens. Little visual with an actual 8" plug from a green explaining the green system.
