From Our Scottsdale Golf Club Director of Golf

By Melanie Halpert Subscribe to RSS | March 31st 2012 | Views:

The temperatures should be getting lower very soon with the summer record of over 33 days at 110 or higher behind us. Cooler nights and great golf weather at the Scottsdale golf club during the days tell us fall is not too far away. We know that football has started, the baseball playoffs are under way, not to mention hockey, and, hopefully, basketball are not far behind, but let’s not forget that once we come out of overseeding, at the Scottsdale golf club our golf season is in full swing. For our members at the Scottsdale golf club who are not familiar with the annual fall program called “overseeding” the following is a summary: Agronomically, cool weather rye grass is planted throughout the turf areas on the Scottsdale golf club course in late September through late October, which when it germinates and grows in, is our playing surface through May. During this time frame our base grass year round (Bermudagrass) goes to sleep or is dormant and goes to the off color of brown. This process takes 3 to 4 weeks with the Scottsdale golf club Golf Course and Practice Park closing during this time, but is necessary for a year round, excellent playing surface. In late spring when temperatures rise, the Bermuda wakes up and the rye goes away. This is the plan each year and we hope it is not too inconvenient for our members.

Scottsdale private golf club GOLF SHOP RETAIL:

We anticipate a very active retail experience at our Scottsdale private golf club with new apparel from vendors such as Peter Millar, Fairway & Green, Adidas, Ashworth, Cutter & Buck, GG Blue, AVR & Royal Plush to name a few. On a hard goods front, we will continue our “Meet or Beat Pricing” on clubs, bags, balls, gloves, shoes, etc. This is to suggest you are hard pressed to get better prices anywhere else than you can get through your own Golf Shop retail program.


Dc Ranch golfers continue to participate in Ladies’, Men’s and Valley Niners’ Interclub matches starting in the fall. If you would like to know the parameters of participation, please contact your professional staff at our Scottsdale private golf club. Scottsdale private golf club GOLF TOURNAMENTS & EVENTS On the members’ website you will notice the continuation of tournaments traditionally held at the Club, and a few new additions to the calendar. The upcoming one we hope you participate in is called “The Rodeo” for men and women. The partner tournament at the Scottsdale golf club for both is a Two‐person Scramble on day one, and Better Ball of Partner on the second and final round. The Ladies play Tuesday and Wednesday, November 15 and 16, and Men play Friday and Saturday, November 18 and 19. Sign up on Fore Tees where you can find additional information.

GOLF INSTRUCTION at Scottsdale private golf club

We are pleased to announce that Danny Edwards is our Director of Instruction at our Scottsdale private golf club whose programs start in November for men, women and juniors. We are polishing up the instruction calendar and you will be able to find the details on the member website and through the Scottsdale golf club Golf Shop. Please know that Danny and your PGA professionals are qualified and eager to help you become a better player.


Over the years, the Scottsdale private golf club has developed a very good relationship with our allied associations such as the Arizona Golf Association, and the United States Golf Association. We are working with them to finalize dates for their programs at DC Ranch regarding slope and course ratings, handicaps, and rules. When they are set, we will let you know how to participate.


October 21 ‐ April 30, 2012 ‐ The golf shop will be open on Tuesdays, through Sundays from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00p.m. The Practice Park will close one hour before sunset which is more often than not, 5:30 p.m. In summary, we expect a very active season of play and to accommodate as many 18‐hole rounds as possible, we will continue to use a 1st and 10th tee start on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at the very least. This was received very well last season, and we were able to play more golfers than years past. We will keep you apprised if schedules change.
