Brookside Mens Golf Club  - Greens Committee/Community Relations Report

Begining January 1st, 2019 there will be an additional Committee working with the Greens Committee. The new Committee wil be called the Community Relations Committee. The     object is to have the BMGC work with the ROBC and surrounding communities to promote golf at Brookside and to promote being Members of the BMGC and the BWGC. Any suggestions you have please contact Bob Baumann at                       
he Greens Committee/Community Relations meets on the second Tuesday of each month to discuss various aspects of the entire operation at Brookside.  The committee is chaired by Brandon Fox - the Director of Golf at Brookside on behalf of the Rose Bowl          Operating Company [RBOC] and includes the General Manager of American Golf - Scott
Scozzola; George Winters the Superintendent of Course Maintenance at Brookside,  Bob Baumann 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 September 2018 meeting include the following:

1. The Brookside Superintendent indicates that both courses have received a heavy dose of fertilizer to help them commence the turf growth for the fall/winter.  All water main breaks have been repaired.  The greens complexes have also been treated and as the weather has cooled the greens are firm and fast!   Greens will not be punched again this year and only on two occasions next year. 

2. Both courses are still having some tree issues.  The removal of some older trees has become necessary and pruning will continue as necessary.   

3. The Cart Path repair project is complete with repairs being made that were necessary.   

The ROSE BOWL is hosting the Rose Bowl Game and this adds added stress to both courses due to the parking and the patrons.  But, the courses are holding up as well as possible under these conditions.  

5. The RBOC has hired American Golf to manage the golf facility.  Thus, the RBOC will be responsible for the day to day opersations of the golf courses and the restuarant.  In that light, they have agreed with Levy Brothers to handle the Restaurant, kitchen, and Rose Bowl Catering. 
6.  Several indications are that the Pro Shop may be moving sometime in 2019   Thus, if you have any script on the books, you should go into the shop and spend it.  You could lose it if the RBOC does not renew the proshop contract.
