Course Update 5-20-18

Afternoon storms with substantial amounts of rainfall has been the trend over the past week. We received 1.15″ of rain Saturday afternoon and evening, bringing the total to 4.3″ over the past 7 days. Greens are beyond their water infiltration rate and are holding excessive amounts of water. Due to the soft, wet conditions, greens will be backed off of for a couple days until they dry out. I do not want to put unnecessary stress upon them when it is only May.  Other areas of the course may have to let dry before mowing as well to prevent ruts and scalping . Please continue using cart paths and extreme caution in your travels to prevent rutting up the course any further. Keep your fingers crossed and pray for drier weather ahead.

Thank you and please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Good Morning Members,

Due to winter running later than usual this year, my staff and I will be utilizing the weekend to catch up on mulching the property. Greens will be mowed and rolled, however cups will not be changed this weekend. Thank you for your understanding as we work on getting caught up.

On the Course ~ April 2018

Its hard to believe we still had snow on the ground just one week ago today. Winter has lingered on longer than anyone has wanted to see. I am pleased that even with the snow, rain, and cold weather my staff and I have been working relentlessly to provide the best conditions for opening day on Saturday, April 28th. Greens were deep tined along with topdressed Monday and Tuesday. Conditions will play a little softer than the norm for a few days. I am pleased to say all the grass has been cut, cleanup of winter debris is almost complete, and mulching of the landscape beds will begin as soon as possible. My staff and I thank you for your understanding as we continue to work hard to provide great playing conditions and beautiful aesthetics as Spring temperatures slowly approach.

Sincerely,

Justin Klaus
