Iíll be brief this month. Work on the course is business as usual. We are busy keeping the rough at a manageable height and trying to stay on schedule with other cultural practices. The week of rain in mid-August was certainly frustrating for us. We had a difficult time keeping the course manicured and well groomed. Your patience and understanding is as always appreciated. I started spraying a product on certain fairways last month in order to slow the growth of the Bermuda Grass and kill some weed issues cropping up in fairways and roughs. I had good success suppressing the Nutsedge, Goosegrass, and Crabgrass. Towards the end of this month we will start raising heights of cut throughout the course in order to prepare the turf for the winter months ahead. This will help prevent potential winter kill from occurring on the course. Until next month have a great start to the fall season.
