Course Update 10/19/12

PARTY GOLF!!! Mr. and Mrs. Renfro take two shots off their score by tackling the beer bong!
It is hard to believe that is has already been two weeks since my last post. The weather has been perfect and both courses are seeing lots of play. The rain and warm temperatures have allowed both courses to see substantial drought recovery, and we are looking forward to entering this winter much healthier than last year.

We have been extremely busy keeping up with normal maintenance, completing fall and winter preparations, and tackling a busy tournament schedule. The list below shows a few of the items that we have been working on:

Nacho aerating the South greens on 10/8.
Our one year old sprayer is a huge help in making crucial apps
  • Completed final aeration on both North and South greens. From here on out we will only be using small solid tines to provide air to the root system.
  • Completed fall fertilizer applications to all areas of both courses
  • Completed 90% of our preventative weed control applications
  • Started repairing the fence on #10 South
  • Treated the bees on 13 North
  • Completed several spray applications on N and S greens in order to protect the greens for the months ahead
  • Mowing heights on roughs, tees, and fairways have been raised and will stay at this height through the winter
  • Steadily raising mowing heights on greens in order to provide protection over the winter.
  • Completed clean up in several areas on the North Course perimeters - including #7, #1, #15, #16
  • Fixed multiple irrigation leaks on North Course
  • Added sand to several bunkers on the South

We have a lot in store for the next couple of weeks. Including:
  • Overseed the driving range tee, and par 3 tees
  • Core aerate specific areas on several greens
  • Begin work on driving range teaching tee
  • Complete fence repairs
  • Continue to fix irrigation issues on the North
  • Solid tine aerate and lightly topdress greens
  • Continue perimeter clean up
  • Edge bunkers and cart paths on both courses
  • Continue to add sand to South bunkers, and stockpile sand for North bunkers
Overall things are going well on both courses. We look forward to completing our fall cultural practices, and shifting gears to accomplishing our winter goals. I will post more next week on our winter goals. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you on the course.
