Superintendent's Update as of 5/11/2019

  • Greens: Height of cut for the spring golf season have been lowered to .120.  The putting surfaces remained healthy throughout the winter golf season and now are actively growing.  Light topdressing (dusting) will continue throughout the growing season to help even out the surface from winter play and recent ball marks.  GCM will continue scheduled greens roller and double cut walk behind/ride on triplex mowers on the putting surfaces to help maintain desired ball speed as well as true ball roll.  Knife venting and vertical cutting combined with light topdressing will help minimize grain influence keeping ball roll true.    
  • Tees: Height of cut for the spring golf season have been set to .500.  Over-seeded par 3 Tifway 419 Bermuda will continue to receive frequent fertility and topdressing to ensure a successful transition of cool season to warm season turf.  
  • Fairways: Height of cut for the spring golf season have been set at .600.  The H.O.C. will aid in spring/summer golf cart traffic.  Holes #13 and #18 will remain "Cart Path Only" until late May.   
  • Rough: Current mow height (1.0").  Mowing at a lower H.O.C. throughout May will help remove dormant turf and help with spring green-up and overall turf uniformity.  GCM will continue to monitor cart traffic to alleviate thin spots developing from funnel points when entering and exiting the Fairways.  Please be aware of rope and stake as well as the 90 degree rule.    
  • Bunkers:  All bunkers have been blown out daily since the beginning of the spring oak leaf drop.  The increased amount of blowing has created small areas of sand build up outside the bunker edge.  GCM will thoroughly clean these areas to redefine the original bunker edge/lip.  Additional sand will continue to be added to the floors of the new bunkers.  The GCM staff will maintain a minimum 4" depth at the floor of the bunkers to avoid club contact with new liners.  The sand depths at the flashing of the new bunkers are intended to be thin to get balls down to the floor of the bunker.   
  • Native Areas: The maintained turf in the native areas will be mowed throughout the spring/summer golf season on an as needed basis.  Certain areas of the course will receive additional mowing (between #3 & #4) to help with pace of play. 
  • Tree Trimming: Tree trimming throughout the course will continue until late May.  GCM will trim trees to remove dead limbs as well as removing limbs that interfere with play.       
  • Practice Putting Green Project    
  • TifEagle putting surface was over-seeded with Poa trivialis @ 6#/M.  The over-seed has established and was maintained at .150 throughout the winter golf season.  This was done to provide extra warmth and moisture of the winter months acting as a natural blanket for the newly developed TifEagle sprigs.  The putting green has now reached the same HOC as the other putting surfaces.  Light fertility and light topdressing will continue on both the putting green surface and new sod throughout the late winter/early spring golf seasons.  First mow height of cut (.250) has been slowly adjusted down to (.150) on the new putting surface.  HOC was adjusted down by .01 increments to ensure a quality cut and avoid any scalp/injury to the newly establish turf.  Now that spring has arrived the practice putting green has reached the same H.O.C. (.120) as the other putting surfaces.  Increased fertility along with light topdressing will continue through spring to help with the transition of the Poa trivialis.
