Nov. 2013 Course Conditions
This month we had our second Turf Advisory Service, On-Site Visit by the USGA. We were very pleased with their comments and recommendations. Bud White, with the USGA, also included an informative article on course closures for maintenance practices. I have also posted the report on the Golf Course Maint. Blog.
We were able to get a contractor to do some major tree trimming at White Wing on Holes #1, 4, 5, 13 & 18. It has made a big impact visually and should help with playability as well.
White Wing Greenside Bunkers
At the end of Oct. we were able to remove 2 – 3 inches of sand from each of the greenside bunkers. We have gotten the new sand in and will begin putting it in over the next couple of months.
All of the overseed on the Par 3’s and Driving Range Tees is up and going. Pre-emerge was applied and finished up by mid-month on all three courses. This should provide us with very weed free conditions through the Spring.
Continue to work on the fertilizer reference tables.
Currently working on case studies. Registering for the GCSAA national in Feb. 2014.
