- 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.
- Fairways will be sprayed on Monday June 7th. Peoples with chemical sensitivities should take note as our spray mixture will include an insecticide.
- Bunkers will be edged and weeded and hopefully finished by the fourth of July.
- 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.
