Greens

Good Afternoon


I would just like to give a report about the greens and there current state.


Green Speed


1)Yes they are slow the reason for the slowness. Is..... to grow seed you need to keep the seed wet to allow it to germinate. causing the green to be soft and slow
2) To allow the seed to grow faster/better we haven't been lowering the height of cut on them as fast as we usually do
3) we have kept the roller off the greens to allow seed to grow in faster.


WHEN WILL THEY GET FASTER!!!!!!!!


This Week we have lowered the greens to .110" . we only go down to .100" so we are close to as low as we go. we will start rolling greens every day from now on to get the speeds up to a more desirable speed. We will also start watering the seeded areas by hand to minimize the wetness on the good turf areas allowing for better ball roll.


Green conditions


Myself and the crew have spent hours over seeding the greens. we have over seeded 4-5 times on all the dead areas.


We also Verticut greens once a week to help get the air, water & fertilizer in to the seeded areas


We will start Plugging/sodding out the big dead spots on 1,16,14,13, but if the seed looks like its filling in we will leave it to finish growing in.


WHY ARE THEY TAKING SO LONG TO GROWN IN. !!!!!!!


It is very difficult to grow seed in the spring here at Redwood Because of the low temperature drops at night. but I can see its working its just going to take some time. also we haven't been getting the really warm temps like the 25 or above that will really help the seed grow faster, so hopefully we have some warmer days coming


With That said I expect a full recovery from all greens this season with the exception of 15.


I appreciate everyone's patience as we try to get these greens, and the rest of the Course back from the dead lol


Thanks

Pull carts

Just a Reminder to all the Members who use pull carts. Pls try and keep pull carts at least 25' feet away from greens and tees pls. Especially in between the green and Bunkers. Like in the picture the heavy traffic from the pull carts makes it difficult for the grass to grow in these areas. 

Thanks

Unfortunately we required some hail damage. Over the weekend with the storm that came threw Saturday all greens have minimal damage 10,17,18 got it the worst. Also all the beautiful flowers we damage/destroyed from the hail. 
So Myself and my crew will have to top dress this week to get them smooth and ready for the Sr club championship this weekend coming up. 
So I ask for your patience as we Clean up the mess from the storm.

Damage to #14 fwy

FYI. Here's a couple pics. On our morning rounds we found someone had done some donuts on our fwy. They must have came from back burm Rd.

 I've had my locks on the gate of the hiway cut 6 times this year. The reason I lock it is for reasons like this. 
 I will look into some how. Securing the gate better. 

My crew worked hard on the repair. This morning We pushed all the sod back over and cover with sand. Should be back to normal  in a week.
