Quick August Update

The golf course finally got a reprieve from a hot, dry July with 1.5" of rain overnight Monday.  We were in desperate need and great color is already returning to the bermudagrass surfaces.  July was the 10th hottest on record and despite the heat, greens held up very well and continue to perform at a high level.  Cooler temperatures, shorter days, and projected rain are always a welcome sight.

REMINDER: THE GOLF COURSE IS CLOSED AUGUST 21-25 for putting green aeration.  The greens will be dryjected and a small core will be pulled.  During this closed time, we will also make our first preventative spring dead spot application as well as fertilizer and pre-emergent herbicide applications.  Irrigation is going to be installed to the left of 13 fairway and tees and collars will be aerated.

Our team has been very busy with projects this summer.  All of the tall fescue between #1 tees and the fairway has been replaced with T-10 bermudagrass sod for a more uniform look.  The tree line between 13 and 14 has been renovated, irrigation installed and sprigged for the final piece to the puzzle.  The fescue on 9 and 18 has been replaced with T-10 sprigs and that grow in is going well.  Bunker sand has been added to select bunkers and raking methods have been adapted to provide softer green side bunker conditions and firmer fairway bunkers.  All of this while maintaining a very busy golf course.  Our team has performed at a very high level and are committed to carrying this effort through the busy fall season.  We are excited about the golf course conditioning and the upcoming fall tournaments.

Have a great weekend,
