   GOLF COURSE UPDATE - May 2016


 

Since we last spoke we have been busy manicuring the course for the upcoming season. We have addressed several nuisance problem areas throughout the course. One in particular is adding nearly 25 tons of bunker sand to the bunkers on holes 3, 7, & 16. They look more attractive once again and the playability is better.

 

Some projects coming soon are re-grassing parts of the rear bunker on hole 12 and completely re-shaping and grassing in the rear bunker on hole 4. Several other beautification upgrades are planned especially in the area of landscaping and adding colorful flowering shrubs. We will prioritize these projects accordingly and complete them as soon as possible.

 

Beginning in late April we started our weekly verticutting and light sanding of the greens. We will verticut lightly at first, but will get more aggressive towards the end of May. 

 

The 8-month old putting green is doing well considering its age. It has some uneven turf issues, but with a series of small core aerifications, topdressings, and fertilizer applications it will be comparable to other greens very soon. We core tined it twice in April and will continue to do this until it is a completely level surface.
