Dog Days of Summer

I'm back! I apologize for the month and a half hiatus. We have been busy on the course and a little short staffed at the moment. It seems every year I long for summer to arrive and look forward to the end of the rain. However by about mid-August I begin to countdown the weeks until fall aerification and the end of irrigation season.

Here are a few photos of typical weekly maintenance practices that occur during the season.

We verticut greens once a month at a depth of 1/16" below height of cut. This is followed by a light sand topdressing.

We typically roll greens three times per week. Greens are hand watered daily to maintain turf health and consistency.
