Wind was the story last week heading into the first two rounds of Club Championships. The course handled the excessive winds well. We do have some debris lingering in areas of tree lines and rough. As we resume with rough mowing this week these things should tidy up with the cut.
As we are nearing the end of August we will be making a small mowing height adjustment to the newest of the clubs greens being 4, 7, 9 and 10. These new greens just recently celebrated their one year anniversary since opening last year. We need to keep in mind the youthfulness of these greens. We have been happy with their performance this season keeping pace to date with the well-established greens on course. Over the past few weeks we have noticed some stresses on these greens that we are not experiencing on the established bent greens. With this in mind we will be making the necessary adjustment to ensure a healthy fall and to assist in setting these greens up for a happy winter and successful future. The adjustment will be minor and with proper water management performance may still be similar to the other greens on course. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we continue to establish these greens for a bright future.
Congratulations to all members who participated in Club Championships this past week. We hope you had a great weekend of competition and golf!
