Parts of the golf course are showing some typical summer stresses, but in general we are happy with our position at this point of the season. We still need some assistance from golfers if we are going to finish the season on a high note. Parking carts with all 4 tires on the path, following the cart traffic policy, sharing carts whenever possible, and of course repairing ball marks (as many as you can without holding up play).
Here are a some strange pictures from the past few days....
We can do better than this. Ball marks seem to be more prevalent lately.
The black layer in the surface of 15 green is a function
of poor drainage and too much rain. There are a few places on greens
where turf is thinning as a result of this. It's fairly common in the summer.
The depth of the profile in these areas is less than the ideal and standard 12".
