Whether golfing Sun City Summerlin’s
courses, walking the dog or driving through
the community, residents may have noticed
that the association has stated work on a
turf reduction program aimed at reducing
expenses for water and maintenance. First
noticed to residents in the July issue of
the Link by Sun City Summerlin Community
Association, Inc., Vice President and
Treasurer Jim Akers, Golf Course Maintenance
staff completed a major project on Thursday,
October 23 at Highland Falls Golf Course.
According to GCM Director Brian Bagwell, the
project involving 6 acres of grassy area in
front of the lake, which runs along Sun City
Boulevard, began a little more than two
months ago when the water to the area was
shut off. In place of the grass, the
landscape has been redesigned to include
several colors and shapes of rock, as well
as drought-tolerant plants and trees.
SCSCAI’s turf-reduction program is
registered with the Southern Nevada Water
Authority, and the Association will receive
a rebate at the conclusion of the projects.

Valley to Hold Rental Club Sale, October 29, 1 P.M.
Are you looking to expand or replace
your golf club selection? Do you need a spare set of clubs for
when your golfing buddy comes into town? Whatever the reason,
Sun City Summerlin has got you covered on Wednesday, October 29,
at 1 p.m., when Palm Valley Golf Course will be holding a sale
of its rental clubs. The Pro shop has got to make room for new
inventory, so residents win. Come in and check out the stock. An
assortment of sets are priced from $175-$250 each. A large
selection of individual clubs also will be available for sale at
$10 per iron; $15 per wood.
All sales are final, and are first come, first serve.
Sewer Project to Delay Traffic
Starting August 4, the city of Las
Vegas will start an 11-month sewer project. It will start at the
intersection of Lake Mead and Rampart boulevards, where there
will be severe lane restrictions for six weeks. After that
phase, the east side of Rampart Boulevard will be closed in
sections for three months at a time for a period of nine month.
This means that only the west side of Rampart Boulevard will be
in use for both north- and south-bound traffic. It would be best
if Sun City residents use alternative routes whenever possible.
You will be updated as more information becomes available.
