White Wing Course and Driving Range Open

White Wing Golf Club will re-open tomorrow July 31st and return to the 90 Degree Rule for cart traffic. We ask that you try to avoid any areas that are still dry (they will look brown) and keep carts in the roughs as much as possible. The Driving Range at White Wing will also be open starting tomorrow.

Non-potable Irrigation Water Supply Update

The non-potable irrigation water supply line that has been under repair for the past week and a half has been fixed. We are now receiving water to the WW irrigation pond which is the irrigation source for both WW and CC golf courses. We have been running heavy irrigation cycles in order to catch the dry areas back up with the rest of the course and WW will be 90 degree again when we re-open this Friday. CC dries out considerably more due to the soil type that it is built on and we hope to have it caught back up over the next week and a half. The repairs to Sun City Blvd. should be complete in the next week and the road re-opened for its regular traffic routing.

Non-potable Water line break

We have a major non-potable line break under Sun City Blvd. by WW hole #1.  We are in search of a contractor for repairs and are working with the city on re-directing traffic during the repair and possibly before as the road has a hump in it where the water break has pushed the asphalt up.  This will be hurting our ability to water WW & CC as well as some common areas, so we need to get this done asap. This is not going to be a cheap repair and as more information becomes available, we will let all know.  Once repairs begin or we begin redirecting of traffic, we will get the word out to the community to be cautious and careful in this area. 
We have gone into water conservation mode and are currently only watering greens and tees until the non-potable line is repaired. Unfortunately this will require us to go CART PATH ONLY until we can make the necessary repairs. We hope to have Legacy Hills isolated soon, if so it will return to 90 degree. White Wing and Cowan Creek will remain CART PATH ONLY until our water supply is repaired.

WW Driving Range Update


Although you may not see constant work throughout the day on the range we are making good progress. We are currently removing dead trees and leveling pot holes on the range. We should have sod in next week and a tree service will be here to grind stumps. Once that is complete I will have new photos to post for before and after pictures.

White Wing Fountains

In case you haven't noticed while playing White Wing lately, the fountains located on the pond right of #9 tee have not been running. 
We had a repairman on site today to swap out what we thought were some bad electronics on the fountain controllers. 
Good new was that he discovered that the panels are ok. 
Bad news is they still are not working and we have to pull the fountains in and see if they are seized up or have sucked up a turtle or two. We plan to do this early next week and will update again after that is completed.

Upcoming Driving Range Closures


Driving Range Closures

In order to renovate our driving range landing areas at White Wing and Cowan Creek we will be closing the ranges later this summer. We will only close one of them at a time for a one month period each. This schedule allows us to keep two of the three ranges open, and will still allow for plenty of practice area during the closures.

The reason this needs to be done is for both aesthetics and the longevity of the equipment used to pick the range. The large ruts that have worn out over the past years cause a lot of wear and tear on the range picker, which in turn cost us in equipment repairs.

The closure dates will be:

White Wing Driving Range: June 29th – July 31st

Cowan Creek Driving Range: August 3rd – Sept. 4th
