News and Notes 3.29.16

  • Weather reports show April 2-7 will be especially cold and that Spring should arrive for good April 10th.
  • Due to the rain on Monday the bunker on #18 is too wet for drainage installation. Once it is dry, drainage, gravel, Better Billy Bunker liner and new sand will be installed. Plus new sod along the top of the bunker.
  • Our regular staff should be on-site in the next 3-4 weeks. Hopefully before opening day.
  • There are 7 temporary workers who will be mulching around the clubhouse, picking up sticks on the course and helping rake and distribute sand in our bunkers. 
  • We are lowering the height of cut on the greens a little each week.
  • Greens aerification is April 4-5th. We will be using solid tines (not removing cores) and applying sand topdressing. Look for a blog post next week as to why we are doing this and not hollow tining and as to why we are aerifying when the holes from last October are not completely healed.
  • Depending on weather the plan is to open the chipping green and to move the driving range tee to grass on April 9th.
  • We will be putting tees back in their regular locations by this Thursday and removing the extra hole locations on the greens next week.
