THE COURSES BOOK A TEE TIME we will begin the overseeding process on the Celebrity Course. During the month of September, both courses played host to major golf events in the Southern Califor- nia PGA section. The Players Course hosted the Southern Califor- nia Open as well as the Southern California PGA Section Championship, both of which registered phenome- nal rounds of golf, includ- ing a new course record 63, where the individual also had one bogey on his card. The Celebrity Course hosted the Toyota Cup where the "best of the best" junior boys and girls played for two days. The winning scores were quite impressive with the girls champion at 6-under and the boys at 10-under. All of this happened following an intense month of August, where heat and humidity wreaked havoc in the desert. If you were here, then you know what I'm talking about as it was challenging to work, play or do anything outside for most of the month. As an agronomist, we plan for summer projects and hope for the best when it comes to weather, but sometimes Mother Nature rules and we are at her mercy. Challenges arise, plans go out the window, and you manage day by day, anticipat- ing that better conditions will emerge. Here's to wishing for a great end to 2020, and hoping that everyone can get out and enjoy wonderful rounds of golf. We will provide re- lief, spectacular views, and many good times at the Indian Wells Golf Resort. Vue Grille & Bar is back open, Shots in the Night will be opening soon, and with fingers crossed, we will get back to what we're used to. It is great to see parking lots full and plenty of golf carts on the courses. As a turf manager that seems weird to say because usually we do not like cart traffic, but right now I say, "Bring it on." We look forward to seeing you out on the fairways! After overseeding, the Celebrity Course will be in full bloom. TAKE A VIDEO TOUR OF THE PLAYERS COURSE . . . . . . . . . . . . TAKE A VIDEO TOUR OF THE CELEBRIT Y COURSE
