The 2016 golf season is coming to a close at HP with the grounds staff putting a few finishing touches across the entire property. The staff is spending the majority of their time these days cleaning leaves; fortunately the weather has been dry, allowing for heavy equipment to move leaves efficiently.

Recently, the staff did a wonderful job finishing the applications of pre and post emergent herbicides (weed control) across the entire property for next season; the graphic below shows the attention of detail to where various herbicides were applied.

Over the winter months the staff will be busy with the tree managment program, installation of a turf fan on 14, continuing education and preventative maintenance on the equipment. The staff is also responsible for snow removal for the parking lots and platform tennis.
In the near future, the cart traffic will be restricted to the cart paths, due to the Zoyisa being dormant, not allowing for any recovery from damage. Also, please be aware the opening of the course could be delayed by frost or even frozen soils. Please follow us on Twitter @pobrienhpgcc, our blog; hydeparkgolfandcountryclub.blogspot.com or call the Proshop for potential delays.
