Let it FLY

The greens are finally open!  Try to get out and enjoy the next couple of days before the rain comes!  The grounds department has been very busy the past couple of weeks.  All of the bentgrass has been laid in the approaches on holes 3,4,5, and 6.  In the coming weeks we will begin sodding the bluegrass on holes 2,4,5,8,15, and 16.  Reminder:  We will be aerifying the week of April 21st. 

Laying bentgrass is very time consuming.   I’m hoping to see these areas open for play in 4-5 weeks.

Before the greens are opened, they must be rolled and then mowed.  The rolling helps settle any frost heavings that occurred this past winter and prevents scalping from the mowers. 

Bartolo, Lolo, and Pablo ready to cut the greens!
