#2 Fairway-No Carts

Due to cart damage on #2 fairway we are asking that everyone play this hole as cart path only.

The picture looks very much like wilting of the turf from drought stress. However the wilt is not being caused by drought but by too much water. What is happening is the roots cannot absorb water fast enough for the plant leaves causing an internal water deficit. As this occurs the leaves collapse under any type of mechanical stress such as cart traffic. In order to get water in the plant leaves we will need to bypass the root system. Therefore you may see some light amounts (1-3 minutes) of water being applied to these areas.
