BELLE GLADE - Maintenance

My name is Ron Hibbard, CGCS and I am the Golf Course Superintendent here at Belle Glade CC. (Pictured in the middle). Pictured right, First Asst. Superintendent, Chad Libby, and left is Second Asst. Jeff Bailey. I am a 11 years Certified Golf Course Supt. with 20+ years’ experience in the golf industry. I am committed and dedicated in making Bonifay a top Golf Course in the Villages. Bonifay is proudly managed by ASG Solutions, LLC. Golfers play a large part in determining the condition of the golf course. Proper use of golf cars, in addition to good course etiquette, makes a big difference. Please help us keep your coursed in the best shape possible by practicing Good Golf and adhering to the following suggestions:


•    Before leaving a bunker, a player should carefully fill up and smooth over all holes and footprints they have made.

     o    ENTER THE BUNKER at the lowest points closest to the ball to avoid unnecessary sand damage to the lip.

     o    ON ALL COURSES AT THE VILLAGES, we request that rakes be replaced INSIDE the bunker at 90 degrees to the edge of the bunkers.


•    Sand should be used to replace divots taken during a swing.

     o    COMPLIMENTARY SAND is available at all Championship and Executive courses.

     o    DAMAGE THROUGH PRACTICE SWINGS. Players should never damage the turf during practice swings. All damage to the course during a shot should be repaired to aid speedy recovery.

     o    EACH PRIVATE GOLF CAR OWNER should obtain a sand bucket or container for filling divots.

     o    TO MAXIMIZE THE USE OF THE GRASS on the driving range tee, please place your ball at the grassy back edge of your previous divot, removing just a small portion of grass with each swing.
