Monday Maintenance!

Mondays are a very important time for the Grounds staff to accomplish many tasks efficently that we would not normally be able to complete while open for regular play. A good example of work that was completed today included:

  • Prepare zoysia nursery at back of practice range
  • Prepare the 8th fairway for sod
  • Fertilize 22 acres of fairways
  • Mow 40 acres of rough
  • Mow fairways
  • Hand broom greens
  • Drag broom greens
  • Double mow greens
  • Topdress greens
  • Topdress tees and approaches
  • Apply wetting agent to greens
  • Apply fertilizer and fungicides to greens
  • Applications of fertilzer and fungicides to tees and approaches
  • Practice tee mowing
  • Innerseeding of the practice tee

Without the dedication of our Grounds Staff it would be challenging to accomplish all the above.

 

Please note that the golf course is open to walkers only at 12:00 off of the first tee. The Proshop is closed so please plan ahead to have clubs available.

 

Thanks,

 

Pat O'Brien

Grounds Superintendent
