We are still on the same mowing schedule. There are a few spots in the fairways that are still pretty soft. The guys have been doing their best to avoid them when mowing. We have kept the carts on the paths lately. We would like to see it get a little bit firmer before letting them out again. We gauge it by looking at the fairways that are normally firm and when we see they are soft we will hold them off. If this weather continues on a drying trend I am sure we will have more opportunities to open the fairways.
The greens are due for some nutrition soon. We will be spraying a plant protectant as well. I am still very please with where the greens are at. The seem to be holding up well to the recent play. The tees are in the same shape. Mowing once a week seems to be good.

One thing that we do know is that many are too far along and are beyond survival. The arborist recommended that we start inter-planting new firs in the areas where the trees are in the worst shape. The Doug Firs are a very important feature of this course and we should consider all of our options to save them.
