Course Update – September 22, 2014
While our work load is very busy all year, August and September always seem to be more stressful and busy. These past two months have been challenging trying to keep everything watered properly, set up daily course preparation, and completing our fall project list. Our minor aerification went over very well last month and did not seem to disappoint anyone’s expectations for playing conditions. As of last week, we completed the last of the bermudagrass eradication plan on 11 and 18. The late summer drought forced us to seed thin areas of rough on the course. Please bear with us as we water the rough heavier than usual to help establish the new seed. Since it appears we will no longer have temperatures in the 90′s, we have resumed dusting the greens with sand on a regular schedule to stay on top of the fast and firm green conditions. The leaves have begun to fall and the staff is doing a great job of removing leaves from playing surfaces. Many of you have noticed our dirt work being done on 1, 5, and 16. We will be installing new tee decks to add length and variety to our golf course. These projects will continue on through the winter. We hope everyone is enjoying this fantastic fall weather. Fall golf doesn’t get much better than this!
