Spring Rough


With the early spring the rough has been very challenging to say the least. The inner seeding of the rough with Tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass is paying off with a more consistent rough that will be able to sustain the hot and humid summers of Cincinnati. The photo in this post shows that we try to maintain the rough height between 2.25 and 2.5 inches. This can fluctuate based upon weather conditions, moisture content and certain micro climates on the golf course. The rough is typically mowed 2-3 times weekly this time of year.

 

Thank-you,
