October means cooler temperatures and a gearing up for the golf season! To get in some good golf this month you may have to jump courses because this is the time period for the bi-annual overseed required to keep golf courses in tip-top shape.
The overseeding process is different from course to course but one thing remains the same regardless of where you play. No one is allowed on the golf course while the seasonal turfs are being swapped out.
You’ll want to check your private club’s overseeding schedule and plan tee times at other courses accordingly. We’ve made it easy for you, just click here to peruse the Arizona overseeding schedule and to call any of the courses with your questions or to schedule a tee time.
