With one week left the staff are working extremely hard for the anticipated golf course opening of April 28th. The picture on the left shows driving range netting being installed. The range will also open on April 28th. The turf conditions are looking good. We have been mowing regularly. We have also been watering. The spring has been quite dry. Hopefully not a sign of the summer ahead. I don't really want to think about drought conditions and water restrictions in April.
Golf Course Superintendent Jason Sewell is topdressing the tee on Hole # 1 - Lakes course.
Topdressing the tees with a sand/peat mixture will help level out the surface, prevent the turf from becoming too thatchy, allow us to lower the height of cut without scalping, and help cover up any rocks in the topsoil underneath.
