The Crest is having a nice spring, we are getting a mix of dry and wet weather. Hopefully, we are done with some of the cold nights that have kept the grass from growing faster. Our early spring projects are complete and we are in the midst of making many of our critical agronomic applications.
The greens are getting better everyday. Their growth has been dependent on the roller coaster ride of night time lows. We have gone through multiple cycles were they stopped growing for several days, hopefully that's over. With the greens in optimal health for the upcoming season our only planed disturbance is our early summer solid tine in late June. This is critical to create large pore space for gas exchange in the root zone during the extreme heat of July.
Our tee boxes are the healthiest they have been in the spring in years. We are planning on doing a late spring aeration and fertilization on them as time and weather permits. They last few years of extra aeration is paying off, we will be doing 3 this year, down from the 5 we have been averaging.
Our emphasis on divot repairs this spring seems to be paying off. The team has made it a point to be out nearly everyday filling divots. Next week we plan on applying organic fertilizer to the fairways to feed them from spring into early summer.
Thank you again for all the support. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns and remember to rate the new bunkers on 18 if you get an opportunity.
