Waiting for Spring!!!

I am still waiting for spring to get here.  This cold snap is making it difficult to tell to what extent the harsh winter damaged our greens.  There is no doubt that we will have some turf loss.  As soon as the weather warms up we will be spiking, aerating and seeding damaged areas.  We will be adding a spring fertilizer application and mowing them slightly higher.  Green speeds will certainly suffer but we will do everything possible to provide the conditions you are used to.

We should be receiving sod the first part of April to finish our tees. 

Fill that we received over the winter has started to be shaped in to mounding that will be seeded with a wild flower mix.  If in the future we need material for a project we will be taking it from this area.  Hopefully spring arrives soon and gives us some good growing days.
