Scottsdale Golf Club Shares Update On Private Golf Course Renovations

August 23, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Scottsdale, AZ based The Country Club at DC Ranch is pleased to share a new update regarding the remodeling and renovations being carried out on their practice park. The club believes that they have addressed every possible requirement that their esteemed patrons have, and are eager to share the results of their work when they officially reopen on Friday the 18th of October.

The Country Club at DC Ranch states that their goal was to develop an expansive environment in which players could comfortably work on all phases of the game. To accomplish this, the club took into account that the new grounds would have to accomodate children and beginning players as well as those more accomplished in the game. This then led them to expand the current practice park in all four directions to a total play area that will exceed 15 acres once complete. They say that, “We are pleased that our golfers enjoy practicing, or at least warming up, before play. However, the South end tee did not have as many stations as we needed on the Scottsdale private golf courses.” To address this lack of space, the club plans to widen the South tee to both the East and West, making room for 5-10 more practice stations upon completion. The North and South tee is also scheduled to be deepened, giving the club around three weeks more use of the area.

Furthermore, the club has noted the deterioration of the wall between the upper and lower tee. Given that the wall restricts the total amount of tee space that can be used in that section, it will not be rebuilt; it will instead be completely removed by the time renovations are concluded.

As the renowned Scottsdale golf club takes great pride in their ability to guide new players in the joys and technical mastery of the game, the back of the instruction tee is set to be graded for the planned two-bay learning center. As the learning center will still retain its own turf for practice, the club hopes that returning players will be able to pick up their training right where they left off. They clarify, “We will designate target locations every 25 yards to help your wedge play. In front of the instruction tee, and heading North, is a narrow driving fairway that extends up to 340 yards. To the right of the fairway mounding, we have a wider fairway that extends the entire length of the Scottsdale private golf courses range.”

With respect to a player’s short games, the club says, “The 4 cup, warm-up green you saw as you headed to the first tee was approximately 3000 square feet. It will now be enlarged to more than 8000 square feet. The complex also includes two short game greens, measuring between 2800-3500 square feet, that will be used for pitching, chipping, greenside, and fairway bunker practice. This short game area at our Scottsdale private golf courses stretches approximately 70 yards in total, which means it is significantly larger than what we had before.“

With the assumption of fair weather and smooth execution, The Country Club at DC Ranch estimates that the rough shaping of the field, targets, greens, and bunkers should be completed in 2-3 weeks, followed by finished grading and sculpting. “We anticipate sprigging all turf areas with 328 Bermuda grass, a change from the previous 419 for better playability and color,” says the club. “Sprigging (pieces of grass with roots) is our preferred method of growing turf versus sodding (plots of turf). When the sprigging begins in the first few weeks of July, it will grow rapidly when we take advantage of high humidity. This is necessary for this Bermuda growth to occur properly and as quickly as possible on Scottsdale private golf courses.”

The club also states that they are grateful to their loyal patrons for their patience and are excited to welcome them back in October. They say, “We hope you understand we want the best surfaces for you to work on your game—and won’t stand for anything less! We are pleased that we will have an all-phase-of-the-game practice area when it is finished. For now, it’s back to the bulldozers, and we will keep you informed as progress occurs.”

Indonesian province shuts schools due to forest fire haze

Sep 21, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Authorities shut most schools in parts of Indonesia's Sumatra island to protect children from a thick, noxious haze as deliberately set fires burned through peatland forests, officials said Wednesday. Indonesia's Disaster Mitigation Agency said more than 3,600 fires have been detected on Sumatra and Borneo islands by weather satellites, leading to very poor air quality in six provinces with a combined population of more than 23 million. Nearly every year, Indonesian forest fires spread health-damaging haze across the country and into neighboring Malaysia and Singapore. Authorities have deployed more than 9,000 people to fight the fires, which...

Indonesia to move capital from sinking Jakarta to Borneo

Sep 21, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's president says the country's capital will move from overcrowded, sinking and polluted Jakarta to a site in sparsely populated East Kalimantan province on Borneo island, known for rainforests and orangutans. President Joko Widodo said Monday intense studies over the past three years had resulted in the choice of the location on the eastern side of Borneo island. The new capital city, which has not yet been named, will be in the middle of the vast archipelago nation and already has relatively complete infrastructure because it is near the cities of Balikpapan and Samarinda, Widodo said. He...

China lets currency sink to 11-year low after Trump threats

Sep 21, 2019

BEIJING — China allowed its yuan to sink to an 11-year low Monday after President Donald Trump sent jittery financial markets tumbling by announcing new tariff hikes and threatening to block American companies from doing business with this country. The escalation in the fight over trade and technology prompted warnings that chances for a settlement were disappearing. The yuan declined to 7.1468 to the dollar, a relatively modest change from Friday's low point of 7.0927 but its weakest rate since January 2008. The yuan has lost 6.5% from this year's high on Feb. 28. Chinese leaders have promised to avoid...

BEKASI, Indonesia — An Indonesian man is walking more than 700 kilometers (430 miles) backward from his village in eastern Java to the country's capital to raise awareness about deforestation.

"I'm doing this to raise people's awareness of deforestation,"...

China threatens retaliation if US tariff hikes go ahead

Sep 21, 2019

BEIJING — China on Thursday threatened retaliation if Washington steps up their war over trade and technology by going ahead with planned Sept. 1 tariff hikes on additional Chinese imports. Beijing will take unspecified "necessary countermeasures," the Cabinet said in a one-sentence statement. It gave no details or any indication plans for trade talks in Washington in September might be affected. The mounting tension has unnerved financial markets that worry the global economy will tip into recession. President Donald Trump says he plans to impose 10% duties on an additional $300 billion of Chinese imports, extending penalties to almost everything...
