Golf Course Netting &
Palm Tree Installation 18th Hole
Dear Members and Home Owners,
We are pleased to share some important updates regarding the recent improvements we have made to enhance safety measures, specifically aimed at preventing errant hit golf shots from the 18th tee entering properties along the right-hand side of the fairway.
Extension of the 18th Hole Middle Tee
As you may recall from a previous Newsletter, we extended the middle tee to the right, creating a safer trajectory for golf shots, and reducing the risk of errant hit shots veering towards residential properties.
Installation of Five New Palms
To further enhance safety, we have strategically installed five new palm trees in front of and to the right-hand side of the forward tee of the 18th hole, specifically targeting the area where players may attempt to cut the corner of the dogleg, encouraging the golfer to aim their tee shot further to the left. These palms act as natural barriers, discouraging players from taking such risky shots. The addition of these trees serves a dual purpose, as they not only enhance safety but also add to the beauty of the hole in general.
Along the right-hand side of the 18th hole we have completed the replacement of the netting with brand new protective netting. The new netting has been designed to be more durable and reliable, providing an effective barrier against any errant hit shots.
Installation of New Palms & Netting
As it is to ourselves, we understand that safety is of the utmost concern to both our home owners and members. By extending the middle tee, installing additional palms, and upgrading the netting, we have implemented a comprehensive approach to mitigate as much as possible any potential risks associated with errant golf shots and we are confident that these measures will significantly contribute to both overall safety and enjoyment of the course.
We and the staff at Desert Springs are looking forward to seeing you on the Indiana course in the near future.
As always, please remember to fix your ball marks and replace your divots.
