Low Areas

With all the rain we have had in the past month some of the low areas, especially in fairway #2, are struggling.

As you can see from the picture of the moisture meter, the Volumetric Water Content (VWC) is 33% which means the water is not draining as it should.

What is happening is the water in the rootzone is cooking itself in the heat and humidity over this past weekend. Basically it becomes an oven and the roots are cooked. In order to prevent this in the future we will mark these areas on a map and add drainage as needed so the water does not stay in these low areas.
