Brookside Mens Golf Club  - Greens Committee Report

The Greens Committee meets on the second Tuesday of each month to discuss various aspects of the entire operation at Brookside.  The committee is chaired by Dave Sams - the Director of Golf at Brookside on behalf of the Rose Bowl Operating Company [RBOC] and includes the General Manager of American Golf - Kyle Mitchell; the Superintendent of Course Maintenance at Brookside, the representative from the Brookside Men's Golf Club, and representatives from the Brookside Women's Club and the E.O. Nay Ladies Club.

Updates from the July 17, 2017 meeting include the following:

1. As per the Superintendent, both courses have received a heavy dose of fertilizer to help them withstand the summer heat.  There were two water main breaks, on course #1, that have been repaired.  The rough will be spot aerified to promote growth in rough areas. 

The grounds crew completed the re-soding of several fairways and tee boxes that were damaged by the Music and Arts festival.      

2. Both courses are still having some tree issues.  The removal of some older trees may be necessary but the RBOC is trying to prune and save as many as possible.  

3. The Cart Path repair project continues and a few new stretches have been installed.   

The ROSE BOWL will begin hosting UCLA football games as well as more fall concerts, including Cold Play and Green Day.  These added events will shut down the courses as needed for parking and set up.  There is discussion of returning the Pasadena City Amateur Championship to its regular yearly month of May. 

5. American Golf is implementing a policy of mandatory cart fees of $30 and two players per cart.  They will no longer allow 3 carts with single riders in any group.

6. American Golf has nearly completed the restaurant renovations by changing the floor, the tables, the booths and chairs and adding larger televisions in the bar area.  They have also painted the interior.  

7. There have been issues with the posting computer in the pro shop due to faulty internet service.  American Golf is looking to remedy the matter so that all golfers that play Brookside, are able to properly post their score after the round.  The BMGC is seeking permission from AG to run a hard cable line from the Internet imput directly to the SCGA sponsored posting computer so that it is up and running on a continuous basis.
