Course Update – July 10

This past Monday July 8th the Turfcare team was able to complete many vital agronomic practices to set the stage for the prime playing season of golf ahead.  We would like to thank the membership for its support in allowing additional time for these practices to be completed. We were able to complete a vent on greens along with a topdressing and fertility application.  Large acreage saw the fairways and tee boxes receive a fertility application and fungicide application to assist with the disease pressures due to the high humidity. Greens will remain a little soft and slower to start the week with the watering requirements for fertility but should soon firm up and regain the pace expected.

This week we are fortunate as a club to host the Manitoba junior golf championship.  We made great efforts on Monday with the course closed to mow all rough on the front nine holes.  We finished up the back nine rough on Tuesday.  This will be all the rough mowing for the week with the junior event. Rough should start to stabilize with the warm forecast.

The warm forecast also has us in a spot to begin watering the property essentially for the first time this year.  We will be out hand watering greens and other areas throughout the day.  Please be aware of the team as they work to keep the course healthy.

Have a great week ahead.

Shawn Major, AGS
