WOW!!!! What a difference a week makes. A week ago we fertilized the golf course and now we have some SERIOUS GRASS GROWING IN THE FAIRWAYS and throughout the golf course. Of course there are some areas (very minimal) that are thin due to shade, but we are implementing cultural practices to improve these areas. One important cultural practice is solid tining the fairways and double application in the thin areas. I have received several questions regarding the red striped lines in the fairways. The lines are there for the maintenance staff to differentiate the two different mowing patterns from the fairway and approach.
