The Crest is starting to warm up and wake up. The weather has turned the corner in the past several days and we are seeing the turf start to come out of dormancy. The team is busy with finalizing our spring work and getting into our in season practices.
The greens have been rolled out and mowed for the first time this spring. The first spring mowing of our cool season turf helps it wake up and start to grow. With the upcoming warm weather and rain I expect to see the greens grow out of last December's aeration quickly.
The sand channel drain lines on 1, 13, and 16 are all sodded in, and the team is putting the finishing touches on them. Making sure that they blend seamlessly into the fairways. The bunker project on 9 is complete and we will open those bunker as soon as the sod knits in.
Our team goals for the spring are progressing nicely. The clubhouse landscaping is nearly complete with fresh mulch. Some new spring annuals will be going in before the holiday weekend. The bunkers have all been freshly edge and are being cleaned out. The sand depth will be check, and sand will be added as needed.
Finally, with the warmer weather the bathrooms on 12 have been opened and we will no longer be requiring the use of the hitting mats on fairways and par-3 tee boxes. Thank you to all the membership for participating in this program this winter. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
