Summer is starting to fade away which means aerification season is just ahead. The schedule follows:
August 18-22 Fairways
August 26-27 Greens surrounds
September 4-5 Tees
October 14-15 Greens (same as we have been doing with small ¼” tines)
This schedule is pretty much the same as we have done previously so you can expect similar conditions as last year.
Everyone keeps telling me how easy it must be this summer with all the rain. Well we haven’t ran much irrigation but that hasn’t decreased the workload any. The heavy rains have kept us busy fixing cart paths and bunker washouts. It may look like everything is fine once you arrive, but the crew has been busy putting the place back together. The rain and continued wetness have also increased disease pressure but we are trying to weather that storm until better drier weather arrives.
