Frost Delays

It is that time of year... as the first tee time gets earlier the potential for frost becomes more of an issue.  Currently, the first tee time is at 8:00 am.  Despite this, we have had two substantial frost delays in the last three days.  

On Saturday June 23rd the first tee time will move up to 7:00 am for the middle of our summer season.  This could increase the likelihood of a frost delay even though the delays may get shorter as the days get warmer.  As most of you all know, we have the potential for frost in any month of the year.  There may also be the situation where frost does not set up on your yard in town, but it can get cold enough at the golf course to get frosty so please check with this blog or the pro shop for a frost delay update. I will aim to have this blog updated one hour before the first tee time on any morning in which we are delayed. 

As always, we will work to get the golf course prepared as quickly as possible.  In addition, my apologies in advance for any inconvenience a frost delay may cause.

Thank you.

Tuesday Evening Maintenance

Last Tuesday we vertical cut the greens during our Tuesday evening maintenance closure on the front 9.  The putting greens responded well, and they are reaching mid season form!

Tomorrow we will continue our fairway recovery efforts.  The plan is aerify the injured areas that have been the slowest to recover.  After the cores are cleaned up, we will then seed and sand topdress. 

You may find ropes, stakes, and signs directing golf carts away from these freshly seeded areas.  Thank you in advance for keeping the cart traffic in these areas to a minimum as we allow for the seed to germinate and grow.

Let us hope the warmer days and nights continue... it is June after all!

Thank you.
