Cart exit of fairways 

A quick reminder that carts must exit fairway before white lines at end of fairway.  Please do not drive carts around green surrounds.  Keeping carts on path around tees and greens protects the turfgrass from being damaged and beaten down.  Carts should also remain on paths par 3 holes as well.  

Thanks for preserving the course!

2 inches of Rain 

Course is closed again.  We have received 10 inches of rain since the weekend. The below picture show tropical waves heading our way in the next few weeks.  

A Flood Watch is now in effect for the Treasure Coast through Thursday night. Windy conditions will continue through our area into tomorrow. These winds will produce hazardous beach and boating conditions. Our rain chances are high with rainfall amounts of up to 2-4 inches possible through Thursday night.

Impacts expected:

    High surf with hazardous beach conditions.

    Minor coastal flooding is expected through Friday.

    Heavy rainfall during the next 48 hours.

    The tropics remain active and everyone should remain vigilant through the end of hurricane season, which is November 30.

    The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a new tropical depression (TD 16) located over the southwestern Caribbean Sea (90L) that should be nearing the coast of Nicaragua early Thursday.

    The depression is expected to become a tropical storm later today or tonight.

    The next name on the Atlantic hurricane list is Nate.

    As this system moves into the Gulf of Mexico there is a possibility for landfall anywhere between New Orleans, LA and Tampa, FL as either a tropical storm or possibly a hurricane.
