In the movie, Air Force One, Harrison Ford, playing the president, shouts to the villain: “Get off my plane.”
At the Club at Boca Pointe, Buck Deibel, the Director of Golf, is shouting to the weeds: “get off my golf course.”
With that challenge, Deibel, following the mandate from the general manager, Helen Karpel, has begun the assault on the weeks that live primarily in the rough of the championship 18-hole golf course.
“I would call it a full court press…a frontal attack. We want the weeds off our course. We’ve met with the top agronomists from our maintenance team and they’ve donned their battle gear.
“Last year, we replaced the front nine fairways with Celebration grass and we are beginning to see the benefits as we enter the growing season. We will plant Celebration grass on the back nine after the heavy-duty battle is waged against the weeds.
“By the time we re-open the back nine and the time when many of our members return in October, the course will be green with envy!”
In addition to the beautifully designed golf course at this Boca Raton golf club, the Club at Boca Pointe has a new state-of-the-art Sports & Fitness Complex, three dining destinations, two lounges, 16 Har-Tru tennis courts, card rooms, robust social calendar, and a friendly environment.
