I don't normally shut ranges down on weekends but my contractor who is going to till the range tee and laser leveling it is available tomorrow morning, Saturday August 16th to do the work. We plan on closing the tee once he arrives at around 9:30-10 a.m. If I delayed his work until Tuesday or Wednesday which we originally planned, we would not be able to sod until at least August 26th due to end of the week preparations and other scheduled outings. This would reduce our prime growing time by 8-10 days.
If the weather holds off next week, we plan to lay sod on Tuesday and Wednesday which would then give us almost two months of growing before frost sets in and places the turf in dormancy. The short range tee will be available for warming up before your round once the tee is closed. We appreciate your understanding during this process.
