Eldorado Hills Golf Course Conditions Update

I wanted to inform everyone as well as hopefully answer some questions on the condition of the greens at Eldorado. We have struggled with the greens from the time the course was bought. Unfortunately, a lot of the damage was out of our control when we opened in the spring of 2014. We were greeted with dead greens on most of the putting surfaces. We had experts come in, and were told there were a number of factors that contributed to this. One major one was due to Mother Nature. The winter of 2013-2014 was a very cold, windy and dry winter. This resulted in a windburn and damage of the greens. Since then we have tediously been attending to the greens to bring them back. We have put in over $100,000 so far, with much more to follow. Many area golf courses were also affected with this condition. The more the exposed green was, the more damage was done. We have brought them back much more than what we started with, but we are not done until we have healthy greens.
Yesterday, April 15th, we closed off the back nine for reseeding. We drop seeded the greens. Followed by spiking them in four different directions, which accomplished sowing the seed into the soil. Next we applied a light top dressing of   #7 sand, which captures the seed, followed by watering.
We had two experienced superintendents from out of town, with their combined experience of over 60 years, come look at the greens . They informed us we are right on track and they said we have done more than the right steps needed up to this point. They suggested this protocol, and we are moving forward.
The seed we are putting on is a fast growing seed which we have shipped in from Oregon. Some important traits are that it resists gray leaf spot, produces dark greens, is a fine leaf texture and is excellent for Golf Courses.  Although, keep in mind, Mother Nature has a lot to do with just how fast this seed will germinate. It is essential to have ground temperatures in the evening at least 52 degrees.  
Our intention is to have the grass get approx. 1” tall before mowing the first time. Then we will come in and mow in lower increments every 3 days.  We chose this time of year, as this is the best time to grow this certain seed. We are aware of upcoming booked tournaments, and there should not be a problem that we foresee. After the back nine is open, we will be closing down the front nine to do the same technique.
Regarding league play, the last open tee time will be 3:30pm on league nights, (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday), starting next week. This will allow league play to not be affected.
We are very excited that the tees and fairways held together and are looking forward to healthy greens! We are asking for your patience and understanding on this matter. We have been advised from the Dean of the Horticulture Dept. at UNL, after having him here to come take soil samples to take back to their lab, and after inspecting the greens, to not have foot traffic on these seeded greens is a must for a quicker, healthier green. Please help us out on that.
Thanks again for your understanding, and please contact me with any further questions.
Sincerely,
Dave Johnson

Spring Course Prep & More
Course activities at this time of the year are always very busy. Spring start up tasks such as: mowing of all turf areas with increasing frequency; bunker grooming (cleaning, leveling, smoothing); fall and winter debris remnant removal; winter tree management completion (pruning and approved removals); placing course furnishings; early season nutrient and plant protect ant treatments; over seeding rough areas; sod patching of winter damaged areas throughout course; filling and pressurizing the irrigation system; and more, are all keeping us hopping! Additonally, we always manage to have a project of two.

Please continue to be considerate while out on the course. The greens are very delicate yet.

We would also like to remind everyone that there has been alot of grass fires in the area. Please be considerate when smoking. Please do not leave cigarettes/cigars on the course.
(This applies throughout the year).

Eldorado is proud to open:

First we would like to thank everyone for their understanding during our construction the last couple weeks and your continued support while we had our lounge/bar area closed off due to safety reasons. Sorry for the paint smells and noise, but we think you will be pleased with the new updated look!


Although we are still the same Eldo, many new updates were done. New tables and chairs, new lighting, new flooring, new TV's, woodwork was all updated, new paint theme, yes-even that high ceiling mangaged to get painted.  Bathrooms were updated, and the  new look with the bar tops and walls using metal created a one of a kind unique look.
Along with all this, comes our new menu!
Please stop out and support your investment and enjoy great food & atmosphere.
