News from the Green Committee

The February 3, 2014, Green Committee meeting was both spirited and informative. The meeting was well attended by members who came to offer their opinions regarding over seeding.

The Green Committee’s objective is to promote and enhance the golfers’ enjoyment and satisfaction from the use of the Quail Creek golf facilities. As the Quail Creek population grows, the Green Committee remains resolute in providing a quality golf course 12 months a year to full time as well as seasonal residents. To that end, we have taken the path of not over seeding our greens. The poa (winter rye grass) has been a challenge, but this condition is improving with aggressive treatment by JR and his staff. The greens, once quite fast, have significantly slowed as far as putting is concerned. So much so that the greens on Coyote may be a bit slow. The decision to not over seed the greens required a three year commitment to properly evaluate that process.

So that everyone knows, the Green Committee is made up of nine voting members; they are five at large members plus representatives from the QCMGA, QCLGA, Duffers and Lady Niners. These folks are all volunteers, donating their time and trying to do the best for the Quail Creek golfing community. The non-voting members are the course superintendent, the head golf professional, a representative from the POA board and the head of golf for Robson. We all have a say in the Committee’s decisions and those decisions are forwarded to the POA Board for approval.

We will keep our residents abreast of the Green Committee actions through the golf associations and periodic articles in the Crossing.
