   GOLF COURSE UPDATE - January 2017


 

Another winter has arrived. My staff and I are busy working on projects and
reconditioning equipment for the upcoming season. The weather has turned
from “above normal fall temps” to “a colder start to winter” so far. We will be
tarping/covering greens on a more proactive basis this winter. Also, during days
of warmer temps, we may only uncover nine holes to save on the labor expenses.
I’m using guidelines from other “transition zone” courses located throughout the
I-40 corridor. Basically if the nighttime temps go down to the 25˚ range and the
daytime highs are not expected to be above 40-45˚, the greens will be covered to
keep the soil temps warmer. I will be keeping the golf shop informed as to when
the greens will be covered and uncovered, so call them or check your emails for
updated conditions.
I will be starting to apply the yearly pre-emergent herbicide application towards
the end of the month, finishing up in February. The staff will be removing the lower
branches on the mature trees, and the pruning of the crepe myrtles will begin this
month as well. We have some firewood available from a couple of dead trees
we’ve had to take down over the last few months. Some is seasoned while other
sections are somewhat green yet. Contact me at 351-2879 if you need some or
with questions on your winter pruning. Hope to see you all at the Club soon. Until
then have a happy and prosperous 2017.
