Message from the Golf Course Director Maxwell Johnson: I want to personally thank the City of Gallup for their MAJOR contributions to Fox Run Golf Course and all associates who have pitched in throughout the entire project. Huge contributions from the City Parks department, Water department, Electrical department, CH2M, Sierra Irrigation, Holiday Nursery and MANY others have helped put Fox Run Golf Course in the right direction for the golfers of Gallup to enjoy. Special thanks to Mid-America Golf and Landscape for all of their efforts they put in to our golf course. From laying the new irrigation system down and re-shaping the landscape to adding terrific drainage, we the golf course maintenance staff are entirely thankful and appreciative of their work.
Winter has descended on us now and growing season has finished up for the remainder of the year, the irrigation lines have been blown out to prevent cracking or breaking sprinkler heads from ice expansion and preparation for next spring has begun. Over seeding will continue during the spring as well as other cultural practices such as aerification, topdressing, and fertilization.
Opening date is still yet to be determined as we want to ensure the golf course is healthy enough to recover from human traffic and damage. Providing a healthy and durable golf course out of the shoots will allow for less maintenance issues for the future of Fox Run. We very much appreciate the patience of the golfers of Gallup and others within the region; we intend to reward that patience with a quality golf course in 2017.
From myself and the maintenance staff at Fox Run, we want to wish you all Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
