Golf Course Operations Update
The last year has certainly been an interesting time for all as we have navigated the Covid-19 pandemic. While many businesses and companies have seen tough times, the golf industry has seen an uptick in play likely due to the limited risk of virus spread as an outdoor sport. We have certainly seen this increase in play occur at our already popular Grapevine Golf Course since May of 2020. While we have certainly enjoyed serving so many more golfers, the heavy increase in play can eventually take a toll of the conditioning of the golf course especially the fairways.
Starting Monday March 8th, Grapevine GC will put the bunker rakes, ball washers and Par 3 sand buckets back on the golf course. Please rake your bunker shots and sand your divots to help with course conditions. Singles and players wanting to only play 9 Holes, Please call the Golf Shop for Tee Times.
The stand-alone nine will be cart path only (Monday – Thursday) for the next 4-6 weeks to help relieve some compaction stress issues. This will also help with course conditions as we enter the warmer turf growing months.
We will also attempt to reduce the excessive number of golf carts on the golf course which has stressed the turf/course conditions over the fall & winter months. Therefore, we will return to our normal (Pre-Covid) policy of allowing a maximum of 2 golf carts per threesome or foursome, and 3 golf carts per fivesome. Any player desiring their own single cart will have the option to do so by paying for both seats (entire cart).
We want to continue to strive to provide you with the most optimum playing conditions possible. We sincerely thank you for playing the Grapevine GC and appreciate your understanding of our updated policies.

AUDUBON COOPERATIVE SANCTUARY PROGRAM FOR GOLF
To further our commitment to environmental stewardship Grapevine Golf Course has become a member of Audubon International and is seeking certification in their Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf. Thus far we have been recognized by Audubon International for the environmental plan we have put forth and will be implementing over the next year. There are five sections to the certification process and we plan to keep you up to date as we complete each section.
“This is a superior public course in terms of its facility and personnel. The City of Grapevine should be exceedingly proud of the way this facility is maintained and managed. The staff from pro shop to Mulligans to the groundspeople are the friendliest and most professional of any place I have experienced. I drive from Plano twice a week to play here. One fellow golfer quit Brookhaven CC… preferring this course and the great treatment and quality of golf he receives here. It really is a jewel. The 27 hole layout breaks up the monotony of playing the same track over and over. I hope the spirit here never changes and if Byron Nelson’s portrait and artifacts in the lobby signify his presence or prior involvement, then that explains why the experience here is so special. Cannot say enough about the superior attitudes of everyone on staff. Been playing here weekly now for 6 years. This is the first place I would bring friends from out of town to play golf in DFW, because I am certain they would be treated well and the golfing experience is the best value for the money.”
