Around the grounds...... February & March

With the course aerification now complete, the weather getting better each day and our season just getting ramped up, we are still getting a ton of course care issues(or lack thereof). The amount of unfixed ball marks on greens is still at an all time high, full sized healthy intact divots in the fairways that if put back will actually start rooting and recover faster than seed/sand mix, and bunkers not being raked after use.

Some needed repairs on our irrigation control box on #18 fairway....a transformer had to be replaced and some re-wiring had to be done.








The storm that rolled through the course on Tuesday gave us .4" of glorious much needed moisture........ and some photo ops!








Pot O' Gold looks to be in the cup on #2 green......



Light "Dusting" on greens finished today to fill and smooth remaining indentions left from aerification 26 days ago......

Hydraulic fluid leak on our greens roller....... unfortunately it was a tiny leak that's hard to spot and wasn't discovered until 8 greens were rolled.
