   GOLF COURSE UPDATE - June 2016


 

The staff and I are busy doing all the necessary practices to continue to groom and prepare the course for June and the Red Wolf Classic. Greens are coming along well. We are now mowing greens at .115 and mowing and rolling daily. The speed is about 10.5 11 now. We need some sunshine and warmer temperatures. Bermuda does not grow well on cloudy days especially when we have 50 degree night time temperatures. We have had many nights in May that were in the 50s.

 

We applied a slow-release fertilizer to the fairways, tees, and immediate rough in late May. This application will help green and thicken up the fairways. In mid-June, we will apply a growth retardant and weed killer to the fairways to control the sedge grass and to increase turf density in the fairways.

 

We hope to continue to beautify the course by adding new landscape beds by the halfway house and to add new hole location markers at the tee boxes.

 

Until next month. Have a good start to your summer. Come see us soon!
