After such a sloppy wet spring, we opened summer with extremely dry weather. The low humidity has provided us with the ability to finally dry the course out, and get it to play fast and firm, which is how we want it to play. . This was the week of hand watering as moisture is lost to the atmosphere at a rapid pace. We were able to apply a wetting agent on Monday to the greens to help aid in moisture consistency throughout the entire profile. Tuesday we topdressed greens lightly, which gave us some great green speeds all week long.
If you were here on Wednesday morning, you were probably asking what is that truck doing driving all over the fairways? This is a fertilizer spreading truck from Harrell's. It applies fertilizer the the fairways once a year that will provide season long food and color, as well as provide grub control. The truck uses GPS to spread the product perfectly. It also has large floatation tires that leave a very little foot print. It looks like a very hot week ahead, but the course is in great shape. Please enjoy, and have a great weekend!
