Course Conditions
We can safely say the course has dried out a bit. We hit a milestone over the weekend and finally pushed the mercury up past 80 degrees. The crew got the course in great shape for the weekend considering how wet everything was all week. We are still seeing a few wet areas and will limit cart access where needed. This morning has been busy. Staab Horticultural is applying Primo to the fairways and we are verticutting and topdressing the greens. Mike will be finishing up with the final touches on the fairway and rough fertilization and then will start sanding the fairways.

The tall grass is taking off along the edges and is looking great. This may not be a favorite for golfers but I sure enjoy the appearance. The course really looks nice with the different heights of cut. Carl has done a fantastic job mowing the edges of the paths and keeping the tall grass at bay. This is a great time of year to take photographs of the course. You can count on me posting some shots in the coming weeks.

Anderson painting can start on the clubhouse as soon as the weather permits. As of today we are planning on next Monday during the shotgun tournament. They should be able to shoot all the walls in one day and then finish the trim the next day. Showscapes is going to begin the landscape construction this Wednesday. If all goes well we should have everything wrapped up by the end of the month!
