Superintendent's Update as of 4/19/2019

  • 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 begin to help keep turf canopy temperatures warm and help even out the surface from winter play and ball marks.  GCM will continue scheduled greens roller and double cut walk behind/triplex mowers on the putting surfaces to help maintain desired ball speed as well as true ball roll.    
  • Tees: Height of cut for the spring golf season have been set to .500.  Over-seeded par 3 Tif419 Bermuda will continue to receive light fertility and topdressing to ensure seed emergence and overall turf vigor.  
  • Fairways: Height of cut for the spring golf season have been set at .600.  The H.O.C. will help with winter cart traffic and help ensure an ideal green-up this spring.  Holes #13 and #18 will remain "Cart Path Only" until May.   
  • Rough: Current mow height (1.5").  Mowing in the rough throughout April will help remove dormant turf and help with spring green-up.  GCM will continue to monitor cart traffic to alleviate thin spots developing from funnel points when entering and exiting the Fairways.    
  • 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 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.   
  • Native Areas: The maintained turf in the native areas will be mowed throughout the spring season on an as needed basis.  GCM will continue clearing areas similar to the clearing done on #5 tees and #16 approach right.    
  • Tree Trimming: Tree trimming throughout the course will continue until late April.  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 HOC (.120) as the other putting surfaces.  Increased fertility will continue through spring to help with the transition of the Poa trivialis.
