For everyone’s safety in the community as we drive around in our golf carts during the day, night, dawn or dusk, if you have golf clubs on the back of your cart, please make sure towels hanging from a golf bag do not cover up the rear lights.
Towels hanging from a golf bags can easily block one or both lights when a turn signal is on or the brakes are being applied or to even see the golf cart at all. This is potentially a very dangerous situation. Please take a moment to check your carts for visibility and thank you.
Drivers can protect themselves with arm signals (like when riding a bike) in addition to the blinkers. Another suggestion is to make sure you have your lights on, especially at dawn or dusk. Most motorcycles now have their lights on all the time to increase their visibility.
What or who is the Golf Operations Call Center?
The Call Center is made up of seasonal employees who are in place from mid-October through mid-April to assist the seven RCSCW golf course pro shops. These employees handle calls for booking, changing, checking and cancelling tee time requests. The staff is eager to help members and public players find a tee time on one of our seven beautiful courses.
How it works: In the morning, the golf course pro shops forward their phones to the Call Center from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. At that time, whenever you call any of the seven golf courses, you will most likely be directed to our friendly Call Center staff. The staff will assist you with tee time reservations, answer general golf-related questions and assist you with talking directly to one of the courses in case of emergencies or for other needs aside from tee time reservations. The Call Center has access to the tee sheet of all seven courses to efficiently assist finding you a tee time.
So please call any of the RCSCW courses and let our friendly Call Center staff assist you with your tee time reservation needs. The phone numbers to reach one of the RCSCW golf courses/Call Center are as follows:

NOW THAT ALL THE COURSES ARE OPEN, PLEASE HELP THE COURSES TO STAY IN TOP CONDITION USING THE FOLLOWING TIPS:
With our peak golf season ramping up and Todd Patty and his staff doing a wonderful job with the overseeding, here are a few tips for us golfers in taking care of the golf course:
- Avoid wet or low areas when driving your golf cart. If you feel/see a wet area please drive your cart in a different location. You will reap the benefits of a great conditioned golf course down the road.
- Please don’t drive too close to the greens or tee boxes. The local rule at our RCSCW golf courses is “no closer than 30’ for most of our golfers. For those of you who have the privilege of driving to 15’ of greens and tees due to the medical flag status, please make sure you take advantage of this opportunity but refrain from driving into sand bunkers, the fringe, apron of the green and in-between the edge of green and any green side bunkers . Remember, 15’ is five good size paces from the tee box area and green.
- While the Bermuda roughs are still green please use the rough for cart traffic as much as you can. This will help take some of the traffic off our newly overseeded fairways. Once the roughs turn brown or go dormant, it is best to have the cart traffic in the fairways as much as possible to help the rough keep as much of the grass intact. We’ll see the difference in the late winter and early spring.
- When using the sand/seed mix during the winter months, please fill the divot area with enough mix to run flush with the surrounding fairway area. It should not be heaped in a pile. This will help the staff in keeping the fairways thick and smooth. Remember to refill your personal sand bottle with the sand seed mixture that is provided at the golf course.
- Only sand tee boxes and fairways. The rough is treated with pre-emergent; therefore, sanding/seeding these areas is not necessary.
- For those of you who might use a pull/push cart during the season, just a reminder to keep the cart off the greens and tee boxes.
My hope is to remind us all of what we can do to help keep our golf courses in the best shape possible. It is always a pleasure to play on a well-maintained golf course and a large part of that responsibility rest on the shoulders of the golfer. Let’s do our part and have an enjoyable golf season!
