September’s Planned Works

September is definitely proving to be the month of growth with more hours being put into cutting the fairways and rough than we do in Spring! The combination of humid evenings and the weather we are having is actually creating 3.5 days on non stop man on a mower rough management, per week. If it grows any faster we’ll just keep the mower going in a continuous circle all week long!

So far this month we have been cutting fairways twice a week and the tee boxes three times a week.

We are going to solid spike all the greens this month which is being done to allow us the chance to get some seed deeper into the ground. The solid spike will be followed be a heavy over-seeding to accomplish this task.

We will also verti-drain the greens once again trying to allow some air into the roots and soften them up a little.

The good thing about fast growing grass is that means the weather has been better for us golfers so I hope you all have been getting the chance to play this month!


August’s accomplished works

August was a pretty lean month with the weather being the main culprit in the plans. With the rain and sun combinations we saw the majority of time we had on the course was spent chasing the growth of grass and trying to keep ahead of the mowing.

We did however manage to Verti-Drain the greens in August which was done to help get some air to the roots.

WE also gave the hill a top dressing to help improve the roll and play on those greens.
