April Superintendent’s Blog
Like the crazy winter it's been we were greeted on the first day of spring with snow. Thus, it delayed the start of several projects including the completion of the bunkers renovation on hole 6. We are rapidly catching up with clean up from the winter and the course is beginning to green-up. Please “Like” our FACEBOOK page and follow us on Twitter for course updates and images.
We were scheduled for Dryject aeration on the greens on March 27th, but due to wet weather we have re-scheduled for April 23rd and 24th. Check out the Dryjet link and view the process.
The primary goal for the month of April will be to get all playing surfaces in the best possible playing conditions. For high traffic areas such as tees, this will involve more aeration, fertilization and topdressing. There are several projects that have started last year we will complete weather and time permitting such as bunker renovation and drainage for several wet areas around the course.
