Allentown Municipal Golf Course is closed for an estimated two weeks of maintenance. The Saturday, January 2 closure is allowing crews to perform necessary aeration and topdressing, and make some drainage improvements.
“The weather has been so good and we have gotten so much play that we haven’t had time to get to those normal late season maintenance items,” said Course General Manager Jeff Wambold. “We want to get that work accomplished.”
The course could reopen as early as Saturday, January 16, weather permitting.
The work is weather dependent, so there is a chance winter weather can delay completion. Golfers can check the Golf Course’s website www.allentowngolf.org for updates, including the Superintendent’s blog.
