President’s Message February


Message from the President

Message from the President

The month of January was again quiet, relatively speaking.  We were closed for many days due to an unusual amount of rain.  The ground remained saturated and vulnerable for quite a while.  We took advantage of the standing water to locate many low spots on both the Center and South greens for remediation. 

We decided to start work on the Center green first since it needed more intensive efforts.  The club will use the South green as it’s primary, with the North green for backup or overflow until the middle or end of February.  Then we will switch over and begin work on the South while using the Center as primary.  The South will likely not be out of service as long as the Center because there were far fewer low spots to treat.

Greens Maintenance

We are open, however, it’s time for some Greens maintenance.  We hope to keep disruptions to a bare minimum, but there will be some inconvenience, and I’m sorry.

Starting on Monday, January 16th, the Center green will come out of rotation for 4 to 6 weeks.  The recent rains have revealed numerous low spots which will be filled in with sand to level our playing field.  The low spots will be identified and marked, and then sand will be spread and leveled in those areas.  The grass will be given time to propagate before the field is tested again to assure us that we were successful.  Additionally, we intend to aerate the green to improve future drainage.
