Even though the golf season is shorter than everyone wants it to be, a golf course superintendents job is never done. It is 365/24/7 for CJ and his employees. Here are a few pictures taken at the end of January to illustrate this fact. The golf course actually needs some snow coverage this time of year to protect the greens from wind damage. While most of the greens are clear of snow and ice and all of our greens are clean of disease, the first two pictures show the difference in the greens from the harsh winter winds. The last picture shows some ice and snow coverage.
3 White – Excellent Shape
4 White – minor plant / leaf desiccation on green (Snow coverage will allow this green to bounce back quick)
7 Blue – Partial Snow / Ice Coverage (CJ has some options to clear the ice if he needs to)
