Break Time is Over

The first few days of the week offered a much needed break from the heat.  Night time temperatures finally getting into the 60s was a big help. Unfortunately the next week to ten days looks painful....

Roots on greens and tees are very shallow and therefore require a lot of babysitting.  Greens are softer, as is always the case in August.  If our bentgrass was a person it would be in ICU.  We're going to be ok, but for now things are minute to minute.  Some very nice courses nearby have gone as far as closing temporarily in order to protect the greens from further damage.  No visitors in ICU.  I'm hoping that the oppressive heat keeps the traffic to a minimum during these next few stressful days.
