As we all await warmer temperatures, we have been very busy on the course. We have completed our early season greens aerification on April 14. We have received over 2 inches of rain since the 14'th, including a snowfall of almost 3 inches. Despite the cold and wet weather, we have applied our summer annual weed prevention application in the rough and fairways. We have also made our bluegrass seed head reduction application on greens. Stumps have been ground out and the cleanup of the entire course continues. We have had several days of sustained winds over 25 mph. The winds brought down many limbs, however we have not lost anything major to date. The tees have received a heavy divot/sand/seed application and the irrigation system is ready to go after a long winter rest. Planning for a drainage project on 11 is in progress and the flower plan is being put together for this seasons landscapes.
The long range forecast shows temperatures increasing in the next 10 days. Lets hope so.
