Golf Kept Giving
During a year that was filled with stops and starts, one thing was pretty consistent at Pine Canyon, and for that, we’re grateful. Golf, on a championship course designed by Jay Morrish, was almost always there for us this season — one that required us all to keep our distance, enjoy outdoor spaces and keep a grip on our patience.
It turns out the same things required of golf are required of a pandemic.
Even though the season as a whole looked and felt a little different than we’re used to, it still offered memorable moments and provided instances for innovation as we all navigated a challenging period.
We were thrilled to be able to continue to host our annual Rifleman tournament, which was well attended and fun for everyone involved. And throughout the season, those who played enjoyed navigating the course on one of our Phat Scooters or on a cart designated to them for the entire season, a service we offered as a COVID-19 safety precaution.
Our dedicated agronomy team kept the course in pristine condition and took time before the start of the season to raise dozens of sprinkler heads, firm up approach areas in front of the greens, and repair damage caused by elk that wander on to the fairways.
The best part, though, about our summer golf season at Pine Canyon, is the time we get to enjoy the course. A relatively quiet monsoon season gave us more time on the course in the absence of afternoon rain, and long, summer days gave us additional hours to start early, play late or squeeze in a full 36 holes.
More than anything, Pine Canyon’s course provided an escape for members looking to stay active and enjoy the outdoors safely. And we’re grateful we were able to keep tee times on the books for everyone who needed one.
