Superintendent's Update as of 10/12/18

  • Greens:   Current mow heights (.100) have been lowered on the putting surfaces to help achieve a quicker green speed.  Final topdressing will be on 10/15.  After Men's CC we will prepare the putting surfaces for the winter season.    
  • Tees:  Foliar applications of wetting agent and fertilizer began on 5/30/18 and will continue bimonthly to ensure plant vigor and uniformity.  Current mow height (.500)  
  • Fairways:  Foliar applications of wetting agent, fertilizer, and plant growth regulator began on 6/6/18 and will continue every three weeks to ensure plant vigor and uniformity.  Current mow height (.550).
  • Rough:  Current mow height (2"). GCM will continue to monitor cart traffic to alleviate thin spots developing from funnel points when entering and exiting the Fairways. 
  • Bunkers:  Additional sand is needed in the new bunkers and will begin this week.  The GCM staff will maintain a minimum 4" depth at the floor of the bunkers to avoid club contact with new liners.   
  • Bids for concrete work and material to resurface boards and railings are still being completed.  Project start dates will be announced once all bids have been collected. 
  • Bids for the metal railing similar to #5 lower tees and between #10 green and #11 tees are in and waiting for approval and scheduling.    
  •  Practice Putting Green Project    
  •  Tuesday, August28th - Tif Eagle sprigs planted and sliced in (two directions).
  •  Tuesday 8/24 - Monday 9/3 sprigs were closely monitored and irrigated to ensure establishment.
  •  Grow-in fertility and light topdressing will begin the week of 9/10 which will level out turf canopy and continue to firm surface.  
  •  First mow (.250) on the newly established sprigs will begin Tuesday 9/11.  Putting surface height of cut will gradually reduce to .140 (early October).
  •  Tie-ins and collar cut will be re-shaped sodded with Latitude 36 Bermuda the week of 9/17.  Final tie-ins will be completed by 10/25.  
Now that the heavy construction process reaches the end, the GCM staff will be able to focus back on much needed detail work throughout the golf course (edging sprinkler heads/yardage plates, redefining native lines and mulch/granite beds, continued bunker sand uniformity/training, and creek/debris cleanup).  We appreciate all the patience the Membership has shown throughout the PG construction phase.
