The time to arrive in the parking lot is 15 minutes prior to the start of the shotgun. Arriving at 8 a.m. may delay our start time.
Cart Path Only After Overseeding. The Oakwood courses closed for overseeding on Oct. 9. When they reopen for play on Nov. 2, it will be Cart Path Only (CPO). This makes it difficult for some of our members. The Pro Shop staff has also advised us that there will be no handicap flags available for the three weeks of Cart Path Only. This will not be a problem for the Niners this year. A new, informal tee box will be created for the three weeks of CPO play. Thanks to a great idea from one of our game managers, Bob Clark, we will be playing from a selected location approximately 130 yards from the greens and as close as possible to the cart path. The holes will be played as par 3s. When arriving at a hole, players will find red-colored pylons marking the tee box. Par 3 holes on the courses being played may be played from the silver tees if they are within these guidelines.
Reminder: Handicap flags permit members to drive on the courses, but the carts must stay 10 yards (30 feet) from the greens, as per course rules. Driving on par 3 fairways is discouraged.
