Course Conditions
could safely say that conditions at Stone Creek are far better than conditions at Sunriver. We were supposed to play golf today at noon but it appears that we won't be doing that.

Aerification went well. I don't think we could have timed it better with the rain coming that evening. We fertilized and applied calcium on Tuesday and now we are off to the races. Mike will spray the greens Monday and at some nitrogen to give them an additional boost. With the nice weather we are expecting this week we should see some good healing happening.

Tees are still strong. We are seeing lots of growth and recovery.

I am glad we applied Primo. The fairways are in great shape. More sand is coming and we will begin topdressing this week.

The berms behind the 9th green have looked off all season. I think it is the result of bill bug. Further investigation has revealed the larvae that is shown above on the left. The damage is very typical to what we are seeing. These insects are becoming more and more wide spread in the area and I am afraid we are not exempt. We aerified, seeded, topdressed and applied an insecticide to the area and should see it improve in the coming weeks.

The trailer was finished Friday but I didn't have time to pick it up. I will have to pick it up next week when I am back in town.

This next weekend we are going to have Steve Pearce and Brian Nishimoto run the weekend chores. I will be home and will check in with them to make sure everything is going well. It will be good to train some others and give them some more responsibility.
