           The weather was very  uncooperative last month and set us back on our pre-emergent  application and several other projects. The 4" of snow/ice in early March pretty much brought all outside renovations to a complete stand still. The new practice bunker washed a little because the grades around the bunker weren't fertilized yet. The pond overflow drain line on Hole #8 is functioning well. We should have all areas we  disturbed and renovated sodded before Fun Fest.


            The greens continue to be in good shape. Some green edges are a little thin; however, once the warm weather arrives we should be able to increase the turf density and health of these fairly quickly by using a combination of cultural practices, fertilizer treatments, spot sodding where necessary. Certain green edges settled out and are staying too moist for the turf to get established well. Shade issues have contributed to thin turf problems too, like on the back of #14 green.


            Our main focus this month is to concentrate on the greens and collars. We need to alter the zone between the green and new collar surfaces to transition better by topdressing and leveling seams and edges. Some small tine aerifications will be performed to aid in adjusting collar contours and soil profiles.


            If time allows we will start on adding new irrigation on hole #14 in the right tree line or extend the cart path on hole #4 to the forward teeing area. Later this year, secondary drain lines will be installed on holes #7, 13 & 14. Other course improvements include re-leveling the senior tees on holes #7 & 16 and expanding the senior tee on hole #1.


            I am very excited about this season. The greens will mature and improve with every passing month. By the end of the Summer they will be nearly flawless and perfect. I think I am even more excited about being able to focus on course beautification and improvements instead of trying to keep the old bent grass greens alive during our hot & humid summers.


            Hope to see y'all at the Fun Fest and out playing golf soon!
