Aerification - Slowly But Surely

We are continuing the aerification process. Unfortunately we have experienced some mechanical issues, so the process is taking a little longer than first anticipated. We will continue the process until all of the fairways are completed. Estimated time of completion = ASAP!!

The golf course has come a long way this year. Proper cultural practices, fertilization and some heat this summer has the turfgrass growing healthy and strong.

Golf Course Update

The Golf Course Maintenance Staff did a remarkable job this week with aerification, the storm on Wednesday and prepping the golf course for a busy weekend. Although the bunker renovation, improved the functionality of the bunkers, Mother Nature controls everything. Wednesday night we received a high amount of precipitation in a short amount of time. Below are some pictures of the bunker damage and hard work implemented by the staff. The greens are 100% healed from the aerification.

Golf Course Update

The aerification of the tees is completed. We are moving along with the fairways, but the wet weather has extended our timeline. We will continue to aerify the fairways until completed. Monday we will focus on holes #16 & #18. Once these are completed the back nine will be done and we will move onto the front 9. The storms from last night resulted in the most significant damage to the bunkers since the renovation. We have experienced strong storms in the past, but last night (Wednesday) really washed the bunker faces. We will make sure the bunkers are repaired and ready for play on Friday and throughout the weekend.

Aerification

We began the aerification process on the tees, fairways and approaches. The process should take about 5-7 days to complete. We appreciate your patience as we are improving the aesthetics and play ability of YOUR golf course.







Geese Police

Glen Rittgers of the Geese Police will be on the property helping us with the geese issue. The process consists of using 1-2 border collies aggravating the geese. They will NOT harm the geese, but will agitate to the point the geese will go somewhere else. Glenn will visit the property frequently throughout the day. The presence of the dogs will deter the geese. This process should take an estimated time of 2-3 weeks.
