2015 Perkerson Park Open Sponsorship Info

This year’s PPO sold out in less than 14 hours!  This event used to take weeks to sell out, so we really appreciate the show of support.

Fall 2014 Update

Wanted to get a quick update out about the course.  The Adopt A Hole Program (where you can adopt a hole to help maintain/improve it) has been off to a slow start.  Many of the adopted holes are looking haggard, and about half have yet to be adopted.  The orphaned holes are getting a haircut […]

Wildflowers

Earlier this year, Beech Hollow Wildflower Farms kindly donated wildflower seeds and plants to the course.  They are starting to bloom, these photos were taken this week: – 3x pics of seedlings germinating (top of hill #7 and next to #11 fairway), they’ll flower next year, but some of the Fall blooming ones might go ahead […]

Looking for help with course upkeep

Spring is here and the woods are alive — with privet and poison ivy.  The core group that built the course in years past has gotten busy and we need help maintaining it in 2014.  At a minimum it needs a haircut every month or two during the growing season.  Our #1 volunteer Fish has […]
