Superintendent's Update as of 12/7/18

  • Greens:   Height of cut for the winter golf season will remain at .130.  The TifEagle putting surfaces still have not reached the new H.O.C.  GCM will keep the greens roller on the putting surfaces to help maintain ideal ball speed as well as true ball roll.    
  • Tees: Height of cut for the winter golf season will remain at .550.  Par 3 Tif419 Bermuda tees have been over-seeded with perennial rye-grass and continue to grow-in.  Regular mow schedule on the over-seeded tees will continue throughout the winter.
  • Fairways: Height of cut for the winter golf season will remain at .650.  The H.O.C. will help with cart traffic throughout the winter and help ensure an ideal green-up next spring.   GCM will continue with fertility in the fairways, collars, approaches, and tees until mid December to ensure proper carbohydrate storage within the root systems.  The continued fertility will aid in a quick green-up for the spring 2019 golf season.
  •  Rough: Current mow height (2.0").  GCM will continue to monitor cart traffic to alleviate thin spots developing from funnel points when entering and exiting the Fairways.  Areas on #2 and #13 have been roped off.  These areas have been seeded with fine fescue.  Theses areas will remain roped off until the successful establishment of the seed has been reached. 
  • Bunkers:  Additional sand is being added to 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.   
  • Native Areas: The maintained turf in the native areas will be mowed throughout the winter season.  The excess summer and fall rains encouraged a surge of growth in these areas.  GCM will begin clearing under the oaks between #3 & #4 fairways beginning the week of 12/9.  
  •  Practice Putting Green Project    
  •  Tif Eagle putting surface was over-seeded with Poa trivialis @ 6#/M.  The over-seed has established and will be 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.    
  •  Grow-in fertility and light topdressing will continue on both the putting green surface and new sod throughout the winter golf season.  
  •  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.
