FROST POLICY AT SEYMOUR

WITH TEMPORARY GREENS

Members: Tuesday thru Sunday

Your tee remains as-is. If a member desires to play regular greens over temporary greens, then they must re-book later in the day if space if available (although greens may still not be open).

Non-Members: Monday

The golf course will open when we can offer 13 or more regular greens. At 12pm if we are unable to offer 13 or more regular greens the golf course will remain closed for the entire day.

WITHOUT TEMPORARY GREENS

Members: Tuesday thru Sunday

There is no “frost delay.” If your tee time occurs when the golf course is closed due to frost you lose your time, and we will have to try to rebook later in the day if space is available.

Non-Members: Monday

The golf course will open when we can offer all 18 greens. At 12 pm if all 18 greens are not ready for opening the golf course remains closed the entire day.

Note: We will have two different price points on Mondays

    1. All greens open
    2. 5 or fewer temporary greens in play

FERTILIZER and FUNGICIDE POLICY

Pesticides (primarily fungicides) are used on the course and practice areas to maintain the health of the grounds. Staff members comply with legislation and manufacturer’s recommendations concerning the use of these products, and all efforts are made to protect golfers from exposure. Notices are posted prior to each application so golfers may choose to play or not to play that day.

Golfers should always take precautions to reduce any chance of absorbing pesticides:

  • Direct and/or indirect contact between your mouth and anything in contact with the playing surface should always be avoided.
  • Skin and eye contact can also result in absorption.
