Irrigation repairs, mulch, cooler weather, equipment repair, thanks Syngenta, Sloma, and Schaner! 


We continue to work with 2 pumps for two courses and one benefit of this is the utility bill is reduced significantly. We will need to plan to get all four major pumps overhauled and repaired next year. The other columns will not last much longer. The field repairs continue as we switch out solenoids and level heads. Thanks Mark Novotny for the tip Wednesday on tightening up the multitude of common wires! It worked.  

 
Jim was able to rebuild Mrs. Graves riding mower this week! Travis & Nancy mowed Ray’s and Mrs. Graves lawn as well as the club house.   

    
 We lost four more college students this week so keeping up with the details will become more challenging. However we were able to spray and begin mulching the HOA or area which should be an HOA to the entrance off of the other state highway on Players. 

We are still under coverage with our disease applications and nutrient management applications.  I have added a buffer to the water to prolong the efficacy and ergonomic output of the products we are utilizing. We still remain well under the national average for 36 holes on expenses in this category.  

    
    
   
Thank you Residex, Syngenta, Nick McAdow from Upper Landsdowne for hosting the information meeting Thursday. Course was in great shape Nick. Great to see George from Raintree South. George and I worked together at New Albany CC over two decades ago. Enjoyed catching up. And Schaner thank you for the Slab of cow! Your are the best traveling steak griller in the country! We should talk about expanding your operation to some Central Ohio meetings! I’d post a photo of the beef but with all the regulations coming at us it may have been too big of a piece of steak, and we ate it all! As you may see below! 

    
  Nick had a little Florida flavor here with a certain kind of Palm! Great to have Jim Turner fly up from Florida to speak about water quality and Ph.  

  
I got to play a few holes of golf with one of my agronomy members Wednesday. Fred is 77 and can stripe rough with the best but I was most impressed with his fishing ability and casting. It came down to the wire and he won by 2 shots.
