We are reaching the halfway point of the Summer. There is nothing like “real” rain to keep the golf course lush. We don’t necessarily like it to come in quick down pours. Most of that water runs off into drainage and is useless as far as giving the grass a nice slow soaking. Some have asked about the stressed out areas mostly on fairways. This usually happens every year to some extent, but this year it has been compounded by the fact that we we not able to aerate 1,2,3,5,7 and 8 fairways. These holes by far the most affected. We had equipment issues late last fall that kept us from completing the aeration of fairways. So by the stress you can see how important that process is. Our original thought was to complete them in early spring, but the cool wet conditions lasted longer than usual. You can be sure that the grass in these areas will be fine as the temps begin to cool. Also, we will begin aerating a couple of weeks earlier in October to ensure the completion by Winter.
We also are going to work on a few more bunkers late this summer into the fall. Hopefully, this will begin this week.
Avoiding the stressed areas with carts will speed up the healing as well.
