The greens at White Wing are doing much better this year and are growing very well for this time of year. Although we have not reached our combined temperatures of 150, which is optimal growing temps for Bermuda grass, we are still seeing some pretty good growth with the temps we have had lately. This past week we topdressed the greens pretty heavy, which slowed them down a bit and we even heard rumblings that the greens were taking a step back or deteriorating again. This is not the case. They are a little slower and not as smooth as the other two courses right now but we have been a little more cautious (to say the least) with our rolling and mowing heights at WW after what we went through last year. All this being said, the health of the greens at WW looks to be at a point now where we can start lowering the cutting heights, rolling more often and getting White Wing to the same consistency as the other two courses. Next week the USGA will be on property and we will be spending the day at White Wing and discussing our agricultural plan moving forward.

Rough grade on the #5 tee box at White Wing has been completed. The contractor will be fine grading this week with plans to sod the left tee with 419 Bermuda grass by the end of the week. The right tee will be complete next week and the zoysia grass will come in shortly after that.
