4th of July Preparation, Lightning on 5 Players Memorial Day Weekend! Wee One,Happy80th Judge! 


“God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another” (1 Peter 4:10 NLT, second edition).La Niña has been in full force with little relief from rain and cooling, ergo on our Foxfire Course one of the original ways tinware fairways is to have a night time watered to out the ole brass quick couplers in the fairways. We do the best with what we have and thank God for each and every day! Mike and Darius watering tonight. 

The evaportranslirations rates have been upwards of .32 ” of moisture per day with the low humidity. We are currently reprogramming the site pro for the Olauers course and have two cables to tack and utilize a ground fault locator to fix the wires and all the heads should be up and running after Joel Braun stops by tomorrow at noon. 
I added 8 USA Flags on the entrance way in to the club and we will have ten USA flags out on the course this weekend with flag holders. Everything has been mowed and the bunkers are in the best shape they have been in for 3 years. I would suggest coming out early to get a great tee time on fast greens. 

Lightning that struck 5 green on Saturday night Memorial Day Weekend. Chuck mowing the first cut when the machine worked. Is repairing it now. 

We water & water & water with hoses all day long  It’s how I was raised. We have been battling basidimycetes fungi which has over 16000 varieties and only soap and water will kill the fungus those are the dark green circles on the green and we are trying to prevent them from dying by utilizing soap or a wetting tablet. We should have some flutalonil and symphony to spray next week. To keep the grass alive for 28 days with that is nothing short of a miracle. 

Mushroom below means the combustible organic matter is rapidly releasing nutrients whic cause the above photo to look completely brown under the profile or hydrophobic. We relocated samples from one ring to another one to in ovulate the micro spores in hopes one of the  cultivars of the disease would erradicate the other ring. To the average golfer they will not notice this but we do have product coming now. Thank you Mrs. Graves! Jim had done an excellent job keeping the three tri plexes going. We only have one tee mower operational for 36 holes and one fairway mower again. Fabricating a fork in the side winder because the nut in the ball joint became stripped from normal wear and tear. 

Blacky his race car makes it out to the track once and awhile. 

Joey and Jastings learned how to repair a green side sprinkler on 13 Players Wednesday the brass valve at the foot valve was clogged, it’s working now. Very tricky with no isolation vslves you have to be quick. 13 tee needed lowered and the head by the green needed an osmac wire to clear the bottom brass stem. Blaise Pascals law. 

Happy Birthday Judge he was 80 on Monday bat telling stage 3 cancer. He paid for the pizza party for the boys, and his wife brought him which was wider full. Keep praying he needs a miracle. 
Thank you Mr. Joe for hosting the Wee One event at Wedgewood. One of the best courses in the Mid West. 

Joe has been at Wedgewood since he built it. Only one of 2 Robert T Jones Jr. designs in Ohio. 

Looking for Joel Braun today to utilize his expertise In tracking wires 500 yards long which make no sense logistically in the design but I’ll get it fixed we got one head on 11 green not working and ground fuses blowing on 003/008  Sat. Boxes. See you on course guys. Always great to see the greens committee chairmans!
