Tough Days Ahead

Here is a great article from our local USGA agronomist.  As you all know we spend a lot of time traveling the course in the summer looking for signs of heat and moisture stress on the greens and tees.  Caring for 78 bentgrass tees and 20 bentgrass greens totaling almost 8 acres and spread out over almost 6 miles of cart path is a very tall task.  The forecast tells me we will be dragging hoses around a lot next week.
