Week Ending June 18, 2017

  • •Despite ZERO rain, the Greens Resurfacing Project continues to progress as expected
  • •Golfers continue to use temporary Greens and the M&O staff continues to maintain them as presentable as possible thru top-dressing, fertilizer apps and daily mowing.
  • •During the week of June 12 - June 18, grass on our new greens showed a lot of growth
  • •It is safe to state that all greens are now about 75% covered with Champion' s G12 grass (See Pictures 4, 5 & 6)
  • •During this past week, the following tasks were performed as recommended by Champion Turf Farms:
    • ○Greens were fertilized on  Monday and Thursday
    • ○Fertilizations were followed by targeted watering  
    • ○After watering is completed, rolling, top-dressing and pulling out weeds have been the focal points for our staff and has taken the majority of the work and attention (See pictures 2 & 3)
    • ○The focus will remain the same for this week but will slowly begin to shift towards smoothing out every greens’ surface so that we are able to mow more often
    • ○This past weekend we were able to mow the practice putting green plus greens1-9 on the course; (See Picture 7)
    • ○Greens 10-18 were skipped due to heavy top-dressing done on Thursday and Friday of last week; we expect to mow those either Tuesday or Wednesday of this week
    • ○Mowing went very well; mowers cleaned and trimmed surface helping to smooth some of the areas out plus exposing those that need attention
    • ○Staff plans to continue top dressing then mowing all greens weekly; both tasks will be done on a "as need basis"
    • ○Watering schedule continues to be on multiple cycles after fertilizer applications and will continue to vary as dictated by weather and different tasks of the "grow in" process
  • •All of the M&O staff has been involved in this “grow-in” and will continue daily until we are completely covered and the greens are ready for play.
  • •After three weeks roots are about 1 1/2” long (See Picture 1)
  • •Please see pictures below and note all were taken last week
  • •Monday, July 24 remains the target reopening day for the regular greens
