Golf Course Update:

The beginning of April has finally brought us some warmer weather and just as importantly the start of our full crew.  We accomplished quite a bit our first week.  Clean up is well underway, bunkers are all raked, the Irrigation system has been charged and we continue to test irrigation heads.  Most of the greens have been aerified.  we should finish up today.  Greens 2,10, 12, 14, and 15 will also be spiked and seeded.    All of the greens  have received a fertilizer application.  Now we just need to give them some time to recover from the harsh winter.  I anticipate 10 and 12 to be temps for at least a few more weeks.  The more time we give them the faster they will recover. 

Have you noticed our new tee markers?  We placed them on holes 1 and 10 as a preview.  If you like them let me know.

Our contractor is scheduled to return this week and sod has been ordered to finish up the tees. Number 8 may continue into next week because we are doing that work in-house. The others should be sodded this week. I'll keep you posted.
