Marking Our Turf

This week we have taken steps to take the course back from Mother Nature.

Drainage work continues on the 1st and 4th holes.

On Wednesday we aerified, seeded, topdressed, and fertilized the practice tee. This should help the tee make a nice recovery from this season's abuse and rough weather.

We are also in the process of seeding blemishes in the fairways. The worst areas we will continue to sod while minor areas we will first attempt to improve through seeding.

This week we have performed some 'test runs' with our aerification equipment in preparation for next week's partial course closures. The chipping green and green nursery have been areated and topdressed.
