Springing Into The Season

As we await the beginning of the golf season, it’s a great time to update everyone on the condition of the golf course. Overall, the course is in great shape for early spring.  Our late fall fungicide applications have held up well under significant disease pressure.  The greens look good and are showing slow but positive signs of recovery from mid-winter desiccation.  We are very saturated right now but are looking forward to improving conditions as the grass responds to increasing soil temperatures.

There is considerable tree damage and lots to clean up to be ready for play. As you can see, the photos show fungicide efficacy and some of the tree damage.  Photo 4 shows tree damage and pink snow mold with lesions beginning to coalesce just off the treated tee surface on right.
