2017 at Arroyo Trabuco has been a great year and – since the current course condition is excellent – it’s set to finish on a high.
It all started last winter and then continued on with this year’s record breaking rainfall.
“It never got cool this winter so our turf never really went dormant,” the club’s director of golf, Geoff Cram said. “And then you had fresh water on top of it, so it’s incredibly green.”
Golf courses across Southern California experienced relief from years of drought this year because of the heavy rains. Many courses experienced better conditions than they had seen in years. But, going through those years of drought had a benefit too. Golf courses have had to adapt and be more efficient with less water. With new water saving strategies, these great course conditions last even longer. As witnessed this year.
This December conditions at Arroyo Trabuco are top notch! Finish the year on a high and check out the greenery:
