Hole 5 will be cart path only.
Rainstorm over night.
Today we poured Halfway house path extension. We will build up sides with soil and sod.
Our rain streak continues at 6 straight days. We will continue to fight disease conditions on the turf.
The First croquet match was played yesterday. We have 2 lawns for your enjoyment. It’s really a great setting so grab your wine glass and mallet!
The weather is still a concern this week as it has rained 5 of the last 7 days. The cloud cover and persistent rain showers have increased disease pressure. Please continue to exit cart paths at white line at end of fairway. Driving carts around greens will thin turf and lies will deteriorate. This week we will continue to refresh green side bunkers with new sand. We are on back 9 today and hopefully weather dependent will finish them this week. We would then refresh fairway bunkers starting next week.
It’s rained 5 straight days now. Course is at field capacity. Plant protectants are being applied to greens, tees and fairways.
I’ve been asked what are those 2 lines around course? On October 23rd we root pruned around trees to stop tree root competition with our turf. These areas will heal up in a couple of weeks.
Tree roots compete for water and nutrients against our turf. This will help turf withstand carts and weather events thru the season. Even palm tree roots can be found 15 feet from base of a palm. Tree roots impact all playing surfaces from greens to bunkers.
