Illahe Golf Update

We have some very exciting things happening with regards to our great Golf Course!

New Golf Carts

Illahe recently received a new fleet of Golf Carts and this year’s model of black & grey look incredible!  The new version includes a smaller wheel base which creates a better turn radius.  They also include newer and more improved batteries that allow for the carts to run for longer periods of time. 

Temporary Greens

We are down to playing only one temporary green on our course and that is on hole # 3.  We appreciate everyone’s patience as Bill and his crew have worked to get the health of the damaged greens back to playable.

Carts on Fairways

Today is a beautiful day on the Golf Course and with the sunshine comes improved access for carts on the course.  We are playing carts in the fairways today, but ask that you adhere to the 90 degree rule as well as keeping the carts away from greens and tees.

Sand & Seed

We encourage everyone to start replacing divots with sand & seed now that we are entering into the spring months and heavier golf season.  Sand & seed is available outside of the Golf Shop and also in between the 1st and 10th tee boxes.  Help keep our course the beautiful course that it is by filling all divots with sand & seed.

Make a tee time today and come out and enjoy your Club!
