9-Hole Golf News

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

A BIG thank you to Annette Hall, Bobbi Sell and Randi Barlows for our Tee-Off “Par-Tee.” If you missed the “Par-Tee” it’s still not to late to join our flock. Dues are only $20 for the season. Please send your checks to Kathy Munsey. It would suit us to a “Tee” to have you join us in our quest for “Par.”

We will have league play on April 6 and 12. Our first monthly scramble will be April 20 (and every third Tuesday for the season). We plan to tee-off at 8:30 a.m. Please meet in the Ladies Locker Room by 8:00 a.m. for sing-up.

If you have questions, comment or ideas, please contact Patsy summers (881-4339).

Together we can make this the best 9-Hole League Season yet!

9-Hole Chair

P.S. May 4 and 5 will be the 9 and 18 hole Tournament. Please remember that it is a two day 18-Hole Scramble.

News from the Course – March 23, 2010

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

  • Lines on the Greens – Last week you may have noticed very light lines appearing on the greens. This is a result of a process called “verti-cutting.” As the grass begins growing on the greens many of the blades remain flat on the surface. This is a normal occurrence resulting from winter’s freeze/thaw as well as foot traffic. The process of mowing greens and cutting individual blades creates (facilitates) growth. “Verti-cutting” also helps develop overall growth by cutting those blades that are laying flat. An additional benefit is that the process makes the greens surface smoother and of course benefits putting.
  • Tees & Fairway Bunker on Five – We will continue to prepare the new tees and the fairway bunker on hole five for sod in the next week or so.
  • Just When the Greens are Perfect – We intend to seriously mess them up next Monday and Tuesday. To maintain a consistent putting surface through-out the golfing season we utilize a maintenance procedure each spring called greens aeration and topdressing. Aeration is achieved with a machine that pulls soil cores out of the greens. The cores are one-half inch in diameter and approximately three-four inches in depth. After these plugs are pulled and removed from the greens, a very heavy top-dressing of sand is applied. The overall process is important to the health of each green. Without the introduction of more oxygen through regular aeration and topdressing the root systems would eventually suffocate. Because our existing root systems are healthy and deeper than the cores taken, the greens will return to a suitable putting surface within two or three weeks.

New from the Course – March 15, 2010

Tye Heidbreder – Superintendent

 

  • Cloud of Dust – During the last week we applied lime on our fairways. Our soil tests indicated a low ph or (acid soil).  To adjust for this condition we apply a palletized high calcium limestone to raise the soil ph.  You may have noticed the large trucks wondering around our course with a substantial dust cloud trailing them.  In general, soil acidity at or near neutrality ensures maximum availability of all essential nutrients in the soil.
  • Fairway Bunker on Hole Five – The Grounds Committee, at management’s request, discussed the continued maintenance problems of this bunker.  It is by far the most maintenance intensive bunker (washes out badly) on the course.  Under consideration was trading sand for grass.  This was approved by the committee and sand was removed last week.  When sod is available this work will be completed.  It may be considered unfortunate by many that – this will not make the bunker play any easier.  Thick grass is tough to hit out of any where on the course.
  • This week – We will be continuing and hopefully finish preparing our tee projects on 10, 14 and 18 for sod work.
