This week began with some very nice sunny weather, and the team was able to mow greens and fairways for the first time since seeding. Greens were mowed 14 days after seeding and fairways were mowed 21 days after seeding, which is fairly typical of newly seeded bentgrass. With the unseasonably cold and wet weather this weekend, staff spent yesterday covering greens, and the covers will likely remain on for several days until the chance of frost has diminished. It appears that we will get a bit of a warm-up later this coming week. Some warmer temperatures and sunshine will be good for the turf.
Pond bank stabilization in full swing. Installation of coconut husk logs has been completed on #12 fairway, #12 approach, and #4 has begun. Staff will continue to work only on installation of logs until later this fall when sod can be laid without requiring large amounts of hand watering.
