Summer is almost here!

The recent warm and dry temperatures have allowed for more consistency with our practices on the golf course. The Zoysia is greening up well and we our close to our summer mowing heights. The staff is currently working on regrassing small sections of fairways that cool season grasses have crept in over time and minor winter damage. The cool season grasses have been sprayed with an herbicide to allow the Zoysia to grow back into these areas. Small areas will be aerified and the Zoysia will out compete when fully growing.

Larger areas as noted in the picture below will be physically removed and the grass line reshaped to create clean definition between the rough and Zoysia.
Heavily shaded areas have seen minor decline as well and will be regrassed over the next few weeks. The new sod on 4,6 are slow to green up and small sections will be replaced. These areas were a little more exposed over the winter compared to 8 which is doing much better. A few things to keep in mind with the new zoysia; the sod can be played out of, but beware of seams and please limit cart traffic across it.
Thanks for your patience and we look forward to seeing you on the golf course.

Grounds Superintendent
