Hard to believe that August is here! The grounds team continues to move forward with many
initiatives. The Zoysia grass continues to improve with just a few blemishes noted across the property. Sodding, plugging, extra fertilizer applications and a little patience were the strategies used to allow recovery from winter injury.
The availability of Zoysia sod has been a challenge due to demand and weather conditions across the Midwest. In order to avoid future issues we will be expanding our Zoysia nursery near the vegetable garden behind the 4th green.
We have had a few comments on the weeds in the high rough areas, the wet spring and early summer have created a sea of green. Over the coming weeks we begin to mow select areas in preparation for an herbicide application. The weeds are currently too large for the herbicides to work effectively.
Wines by the Vines:
August 22nd Bryan Miller, Horticulturist will the host the inaugural "Wine by the Vines” an evening exploring the Clubs plantings from 7:00-8:00pm. Please be on the lookout for details of this event!
Once again, thank-you for the feedback on the golf course and grounds, the entire grounds team have done an excellent job, in these challenging growing conditions.
