Welcome to The Quarry Golf Course Winter/Spring 2020 Newsletter! We will be highlighting Course Conditions with Bruce Burger, Pro Tips from Sean Etheredge, Green Fee Specials, and Restaurant information. Our next Newsletter will be in March 2020.

ON THE GREEN WITH BRUCE

The winter overseeding on the greens is establishing nicely and will provide a smooth putting surface through the winter and early spring. We used Poa trivialis seed on the greens which is a fine textured grass that can tolerate low mowing heights. The dark green color is also a nice contrast to the dormant greens surrounds and fairways this time of year.

Beginning on June 1st, the greens at The Quarry will undergo the first renovation since they were established in 1993. At that time, the premier dwarf bermudagrass for greens was Tifdwarf and that’s what was planted back then. Since then, beginning in the mid ‘90’s, new ultra-dwarf Bermuda grasses have been developed. We have chosen to renovate and replant with Tifeagle Bermuda. This is an ultra-fine textured grass that offers a superior putting surface. When we reopen on September 1st, the players will really notice a difference in ball roll and speed and we believe the entire golf experience will be greatly enhanced. Stay tuned for updates.

CENTMENTVILLE GRILLE

FUN FACTS

The plants' smokestacks created an updraft, drawing smoke and gases away from the factory floor and providing ventilation for workers who made cement with extreme heat and crushed rock.

These smokestacks that tower over 200 feet are the most visual reminders of the Alamo Cement Plant Co. and are now a major part of the San Antonio Skyline.
