Admirals Cove is one of top golf clubs in the country. It already hosts a U.S. Open Sectional qualifying event every year and as a result has a reputation of being one of the best golf facilities around. However, in order to maintain the quality that its members have come to expect, some changes are coming to the club.

In an email sent to all its golf members, The Club at Admirals Cove announced some changes to their "in season" maintenance practices and schedules.

The East and Golf Village Courses will now be closed on Monday mornings on an alternating basis. This will allow the club to accomplish all their necessary maintenance with the least amount of impact since Monday is typically the slowest day play-wise.

In addition, here are some additional maintenance practices that will now go into effect:

  • Needle-tining greens. This allows the greens to exchange gases that build up in to soil and replace them with oxygen. The subsurface of a green's profile needs oxygen for the roots to breathe.

  • Top dressing the greens with sand. When the turf is wet, the sand can clump, thereby not settling down into the grass. With the course closed in the morning we can apply the sand later in the morning and still work it into the turf before the members play.

  • Fertilizing of greens, tees, and fairways is better done when members are not on the course. This will allow us to water-in the fertilizer properly, and avoiding the burning of the grass blade. Burning can occur if golf cars drive on the grass prior to the grass absorbing the fertilizer.

  • Detail work like the edging of cart paths or bunkers. Normally this would need to be done in the middle of play.

If you have any additional questions, please contact the club at 561-744-1700.
