This month we will be hitting our stride with cleanup of tree debris. We have purchase some equipment to help assist us and make the work more efficient.
Along with cleanup we will be applying our weed control products. We will start spraying our pre-emerge and round-up combo in all the non overseeded bermudagrass roughs.

With 2014 ending we will recap the last few months since our last blog post and look ahead to the upcoming 2015 golf season. In the last few weeks you may have noticed while playing the course that we are in the process of a large scale tree removal.

We have discussed this before the first tree was cut and are working hard to limit the damage to confined areas. As for the brush and debris, our crew will start clean up as soon as the loggers have completely finished a area.
As for our staff, we have be doing little things along the way while waiting on spring. We have started clearing some of the small underbrush on hillsides around the course.
We have also leveled a few areas around the collars.
Some of the fairways in the bottom lands did not take as well since the bermudagrass was extremely dense and healthy. Since then we have lowered the height of cut on those holes and reseeded them. With germination being slow this time of year, we should see them flush out early spring.

We finished our fall aerification last week. We decided to do a deep tine before our usual coring. Doing the deep tine aerification will help to provide spaces for root growth below our normal 4" root zone. We had perfect temperatures this week but had to deal with rain Monday and Tuesday. We put out 70 tons of sand this time, which is almost 20 tons more than we usually use.
