Weather Delays on the Executive Golf Trail

Unfortunately we are not able to recover tee times lost due to weather delays such as fog, rain, or frost. However, we do make every effort to get golfers on the course (where possible) when conditions permit. In the case of a frost delay, we will begin tee times at the time when the frost delay is lifted.


The Executive Golf Trail Scramble

Held in September, the Scramble is the premier event of the calendar each year on the Executive Golf Trail. This annual charity event has raised thousands of dollars since its inception in 2000. In 2005, the event raised $7000.00 towards supporting Operation Shoebox and the Red Cross Hurricane Katrina Relief. The tournament is a 36-hole scramble format event designed to include players of all skill levels.
