This upcoming Memorial Day weekend marks the traditional unofficial start to summer. However, this year mother nature is not full on board. We have had unusually cool weather over the past few weeks, including 4 rare frosts after mother's day! The golf course conditions continue to improve with every passing day, and we are confident that by early June the weather will have normalized.
The fescue areas on the course are a major focal point of the agronomy team this season. Significant programs and application have been made to improve the ascetics and playablity of the fescue in the past 9 months. We are starting to see the fruits of that labor this spring as the fescue seedheads are beginning to pop out. Right now you will notice a more purple color to these areas, but as the seedhead matures in the coming days it will hopefully turn brown and give us our signature look. Please do not drive in these areas, because the weight of the golf carts will damage the plants.
Thank you all for your continued support. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I hope you all are well and are enjoying our wonderful golf course!
