Course Update 9/10/21
We continue to make plans for a full bunker renovation beginning on August 1st of 2022 and finishing in Summer of 2023. We have secured Beau Welling Design as our design consultant. Architects from BWD will be on property September 15th and 16th to further evaluate the golf course. We intend to further define the scope of the project and to have a construction company selected by December.
T-Bend Construction will be returning the week of September 20th to complete paving on the front nine. They are reserving time for us throughout the Spring of 2022 to complete holes 10-18.
Based on PoaCure testing that we completed this summer, we will be expanding our application areas next year to include all tees and six of our greens that have the highest percentage of poa annua. These will include the Big Putting green at the Practice Facility, 1,3,7,12, and 13. Number 3 green was one of our test greens from this summer and it would seem that we’ve eradicated at least 50% of the poa annua that was there. Based on these results and the lack of any damage to desirable turfgrass we are making our decision to expand the program. We will continue to evaluate the use of this product on fairways.
Fall Greens dryjecting is scheduled for Sunday afternoon on September 26th, finishing midday on Monday the 27th.
Other Fall projects include:
Drainage work at the Practice Facility and on holes 3, 6, 10, and 18.
Adding a turf area behind the pool.
Excavating on the North side of the tunnel to improve visibility for cart traffic.
Dead tree removal everywhere.
As much fairway aeration and topdressing as weather will allow.
