Golf Course Update – May 31

As of June 1st we will have 16 greens open on a full time basis. We feel the sodded areas on most of our greens have established well enough to withstand everyday traffic. This week we applied a fairly heavy sand top-dressing after venting all the greens to smooth the surfaces. This will allow us to lower the height of cuts on the 9 better greens and the 9 sodded greens. While we have lowered heights on some greens, we still need to keep the general heights higher than normal for this time of year which will result in slower green speeds. We will continue through the recovery process over the next few weeks, but hope to have 18 greens in play very soon.
