HEAT WAVE


The Weather takes the headlines this week.  Our heat wave officially came to an end on Sunday after six straight days over ninety.  When it gets that hot for that long it makes for some long days.  We purchased soil moisture meters with the new irrigation system to monitor moisture levels and soil temperatures.   Our 16th green hit 100 degrees for three straight days.   That is sure to make any grass sick.    Let's hope we can get back to more normal temperatures for awhile.   Area Superintendents are earning there keep this summer!!!! 

The club pro championships on Monday and Tuesday went very well.  They had over 170 players each day.  Congratulations to the Winner Rob labritz from Glen Arbor with a two day total of  8 under.

We also had the finals of our club championship this past Saturday.   Congratulations to Mr. Greg Braca  and Runner Up Mr. James Comfort for a well played tournament. 




This is our computer that monitors soil moisture and temperatures.  you can see that it was 100 degrees for three straight days. The other graph is the soil temperature at a 7 inch depth.  (the 100 degrees is at a depth of 3 inches).
