Cleaning up

This tree located near the eighth fairway at San Felipe Springs Golf Course was uprooted and tipped over due to the high winds from an April 27 thunderstorm. The clearing of damaged trees, repair of greens and cleaning up debris were just some of the challenges facing the city of Del Rio’s maintenance staff as they worked to get the course in shape for its re-opening this Saturday.

Del Rio’s municipal golf course will re-open Saturday, but it won’t be a simple walk in the park.

San Felipe Springs Golf Course Pro Ariel Falcon said the re-opening of the course, which has been closed since March 24 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is basically a trial run for the course. He also added that all of the new measure being put in place are for the golfers and staff at the course.
