The Dog Days of... May?

We are experiencing historically warm weather for May.  Forecasters touted today as a day which we are likely to experience a new record high temperature for May 10 in Des Moines. The weather has been very conducive for firm, fast golf.  The grounds crew has been making significant progress on several fronts.  We have been replacing sod, adding sand to bunkers, pouring concrete, and tuning- up the irrigation system.   
The arid conditions have us hand- watering constantly.

Crew members prep an area near the 8th fairway for sod.

Cart path repairs were made last week.
