has driven golfers to new heights, literally. With a clubhouse
elevation of 3800 feet and an elevation change of over 300 feet, from
its highest to lowest point, golfers will feel as though they have been
driven on a rollercoaster through the mountains.
what sets Greywolf apart from other mountain golf courses, are not the
elevation changes, spectacular views or imaginative design, but rather
the turf that the golfers will play on. Greywolf was designed
and built with, not only, bentgrass greens, which is typical for most
northern courses, but also bentgrass tees and fairways, giving the
course a very dramatic and manicured appearance.
Bentgrass is a much finer textured and tighter knit grass than your
typical Kentucky bluegrass fairway. For this reason the golfer will
find that the ball will roll much farther on bentgrass.
situated in the mountains and having an extended and deep snow pack the
bentgrass is exposed to an extremely high amount of disease pressure.
However, with a tried and tested winterization program, the bentgrass
has proven to be very hardy and successful in warding off disease
throughout the winter months. The extended snow cover at Greywolf
provides invaluable moisture to the entire golf course during the
spring thaw which results in a rapid “greening” of the turf once
exposed to the sunlight.
