Course Update June 12, 2015


“For we fix our attention, not on things that are seen, but on things that are unseen. What can be seen lasts only for a time, but what cannot be seen lasts forever.” (2 Corinthians 4:18 TEV)

The Agronony Team did an excellent job this week preparing for the golf tournaments this weekend! As we continue to search for a solution to the broken pumps remember the water will run longer throughout the morning  to keep up with watering demands due to 90 degree temperatures and  evapotranspiration rates. One Players green looks much better after hand watering with a newer wetting agent tablet!    
We are still operating at 47% capacity on irrigation efficiency due to the pumps being worn out and a failed jockey pump. Surge Pro and Primo were applied to the greens and Players Club fairways with fungicides and the Agra Rouse was added to the Foxfire fairways with Primo and a fungicide. The primo will reduce the clipping yield and create a tighter surface which will enhance playability. We also got our water reports and a couple of soil tests results this week and they coincide to the Agronomic program we are currently utilizing.  Great week staff! Thank you all for your hard work. We are operating on an ergonomic efficiency labor rate 25% below the national average for 36 golfing holes and practice facility. There is much work left to complete but we are progressing each week! The range was prepared Monday for the Junior golf program. Target greens were mowed as well as junior tees on the driving range.  

     

We added a new approach area to #15 Players this week and will continue this process in other areas as time and resources are available.
