Fans, Wasps and Broken Tees

The fans are up around #8 green. They oscillate and provide air movement across the green surface in what is normally a stagnant area. Our goal with these fans is to reduce heat stress by cooling the turf canopy. Here's how they look:

There are several bunkers throughout the course which have flying insects in them. They are called Sand Wasps and ARE NOT dangerous and DO NOT sting. While annoying, they are harmless. Unfortuntalely they are difficult to control, but we have an idea that may work. It will be labor intensive but we should see some results over the next 1-2 weeks.

Finally, we have placed broken tee baskets on all the Blue tees throughout the course. Please use them to put your tees in so our mowers do not run over them which leads to damaged reels.
