    GOLF COURSE UPDATE - APRIL 2016


 

What a difference a year makes. The mild winter and early spring has already brought the greens out of dormancy.  We started dropping the height of cut in mid-March. Currently we are at 5/32” of an inch or .155.  The greens look great and are rolling well.  We should have a fantastic “Fun Fest” tournament later this month.

 My staff and I are continuing to make several course enhancements in preparation for the upcoming season.  We are sodding several worn out bare areas around high traffic areas.  Adding stone path extensions by several tee boxes to decrease wear patterns.  Also, we are preparing to re-grass the front lawn to improve the “curb appeal” of our club.  We are developing a plan to incorporate more flowering bushes in landscape areas, especially by the halfway house.

 One area of concern I would like to discuss is the amount of unnecessary cart traffic causing ruts and wear patterns on holes #5 & #12. When we had nearly 7” of rain during a five day period in early March, there were several sets of muddy tire tracks in front of and behind 12 green and many tracks in the rough leading to the open field adjacent to hole #5. When we get into a wet period it is best to please stay on the cart path at all times. Even if you are going back and forth to the sub-divisions located around the course.

 To end this month’s column I would like to thank you all for a great ten years here at Jonesboro Country Club.  It has been a wonderful experience and pleasure working for you.  My family and I love it here. I look forward to many more years to come.  Thank you all for everything and for choosing me to be your Superintendent ten years ago, April 2006.
