West Hills Golf News Update

Tuesday, August 14, 2018


Good afternoon everyone,


-Over the past four weeks, we have been giving out our complimentary WHG repair tools to help promote fixing ball marks on our greens.  I wanted to say thanks to the many members and guests that have been diligent with this process and that we appreciate the effort of fixing their ball mark and marks from other golfers, when time permits.  Since this is an ongoing issue, we would like to ask all members to continue this process to help keep our greens rolling consistently for everyone!  As a general rule, a ball mark repaired within 10 minutes will heal with a smooth surface within two to three days.  An unrepaired ball mark may take as long as three weeks to heal, but the result will be an uneven surface.

So, if you need a tool, please ask a WHG Starter or Staff Member to get you one.


-I wanted to let everyone know that for Thursday August 16th, we will be reversing the front and back 9 to allow our maintenance crew to complete work on the front 9 (weather permitting).


-Also, a reminder to all members regarding the 2018 Club Championships taking place on August 25-26!  I have provided another copy of the details/deadline for the event below:
