Golf Course Update The aerification process has been completed. (Aeration is the process by which holes are put into the ground to allow for air to be able to get into the soil beneath the green.). The staff completed the tee boxes, fairways, approaches, and collars in September. Green aerification took place this past Monday and Tuesday. The good news is that the greens are healthy and only needed a small hole punch this fall!
In October, we will continue the process of removing some of the dead trees as well as some trees that are affecting the play-ability of the golf course. This process started three years ago and was concentrated mainly around the clubhouse viewing area. This season, you will notice trees throughout the course being removed.
We do not have a official closing date for the golf course. In years past, it has been around October 20th – give or take 5 days. The Quest will e-mail you once a closing date has been decided.
Scarecrow Mania October 1st-16th
Scarecrow Mania started this week throughout Roscommon County! Put on by the Higgins Lake/Roscommon Chamber of Commerce, there are over 40 participants who volunteered to have a scarecrow. You are encouraged to check out all of the counties scarecrows and vote for your favorite.
Of course The Quest Golf Club is participating! Thanks to Lloyd and Tina, we have our best and biggest scarecrow display ever! We need your help though. We need you to post a picture of our scarecrow display to social media using the hashtag #MyRoscoLife or simply e-mail the Higgins Lake/Roscommon Chamber at email@example.com and tell them that The Quest scarecrow is your favorite!
Join us for our final event of the season and our sixth annual “Toughman Day”! Experience the course like never before as hole locations will be in spots that they have never been!
