Currently we are prepping some areas for a sod delivery on Monday. They include parts of #3 fairway.
Next to the right hand side fairway bunker on hole #11.
Plus other selected spots throughout the golf course.
Thanks to Assistant Superintendent Carey Bailey, our preemergent herbicide application is complete in the native areas. He has also completed the first preemergent application to roughs and will do bunker faces on Monday. Next up for our preemergent schedule is fairways after the bunker faces have been completed.
Work on the new irrigation around #4 tees is progressing nicely. We have stripped and prepped the Black tee on top of the hill in preparation for sodding on Monday. Irrigation is also being added to that tee.
The carry from this tee is only about 190 yards to the rough just in front of the fairway. However the elevation is similar to the fairway elevation making this somewhat of an easier shot for some.
Several of the Skip Laurels next to #2 tee have been removed and will be replaced soon. They received severe winter damage from the winds. Next winter we will set-up temporary protection to prevent this from happening. Once the roots are strong enough in a few years the winter protection will not be needed.
