Golf Course Update-Summer is here...
In order to enhance the playability and health of the golf course, hand-watering or syringing of the greens, tees and approach areas is employed. Syringing occurs when a light mist of water is applied to the turf to reduce the surface temperature of turf canopy. The cool season grasses, specifically the Annual Bluegrass are compromised compared to Creeping Bentgrass in hot weather. This is a challenge when up to 60% of the putting surfaces are composed of Annual Bluegrass.
Also, please continue to operate the golf carts in the Zoysia grass fairways to reduce traffic and stress placed upon the turf-type tall fescue roughs.
