New irrigation #7

The boys are doing a great job of getting our new irrigation line put in on number 7. The old line had been removed from lake bank repairs this winter. 340 feet of new pipe and four new heads are getting put in today.

Winter Dessication Prevention

With the rise in temperatures and wind in February this year, I felt this was a good time to share the importance of water management during drought conditions.

Dormant Zoysia Round-up Application

The boys started our dormant zoysia application yesterday. This application cleans up any remaining weeds and that pesky Poa Annua in the dormant  zoysia. Along with herbicide, we also apply a pre-emergent to prevent new germination of weeds. Today and yesterday we targeted green surrounds and greenside bunkers. The rest of the week will be fairways and fairway bunkers.
