Creek Update, Foam Marking and Smarty Reflectors

This week Nickle Electrical is finishing up the work needed for the electrical outlets that go along the creek for the water circulation pumps. On Monday the high voltage connection will occur so everything will be powered up. White Oak continues to sod along the creek banks in high erosion areas. Work on the stone bridge that crosses the creek on #15 is looking great. They will be moving to the crossing to #13 green/#14 tees shortly. The long awaited work on the cart path that was taken out on #14 will happen this weekend. Hope to prep this weekend and pour concrete early next week. We will also be pouring concrete where we had to cross the cart path on holes #2, #6, #10, #13 and #15. Finally our staff is digging the trench and installing the 4" pipe that will connect the new well to the existing well which is located to the right of #15 green. We will tie-in to the pipe that feeds our irrigation lake.

I seem to always get questions about the white foam people see on the golf course when we make agronomic applications. Here's a picture of what I'm talking about in fairway #2.

These are actually soap mixed with water that come out of the end of the booms on our sprayers. They help us to see where we have been when making these applications. Depending on the weather they may hang around from a few minutes to an hour or so. Today and tomorrow we are applying a pre-emergent herbicide to fairways and tees.

One last item to note, we have also installed the Smarty Reflectors on the driving range flagsticks. So both the flags on the golf course and the driving range have them.
