Maintenance alerts for the week of June 7th, 2010.

  1. Our normally scheduled aerification of putting greens the first Monday in June has been postponed for now to save on budgetary expense. Greens will be spiked using a “bayonet” style of tine. This opening will allow for atmospheric exchange but will do nothing for organic matter accumulation. This work will commence shortly.
  2. Fairways will be sprayed on Monday June 7th. Peoples with chemical sensitivities should take note as our spray mixture will include an insecticide.
  3. Bunkers will be edged and weeded and hopefully finished by the fourth of July.
  4. Fairways clippings continue to be a problem. The mineralization of organic matter explains the surge of growth.  The color on the other hand is a by product of the Poa Annua plants manufacturing seed heads instead of synthesizing chlorophyll molecules.
