Bunker picture

The first two pictures are of the bunkers that have washed after the big storm that dumped over an inch and a half of rain. The turf care staff will work with these areas over the next couple of days to repair all bunkers.

The following two pictures are of Jay Kieth (our Chemical applicator) applying a Growth Regulator to the bermuda grass that surrounds the bunker edge. This will help the bermuda grass from growing as fast and allow for less penal playing conditions in these areas.

Pictures in order:
-William is slicing bermuda weak areas,hard pan areas along with new sodded areas.
-Turf crew trimming bermuda grass around bunkers. We have also sprayed these areas with a growth regulator to slow down the growth of the bermuda.
-Venting Greens using a 9 mm tine on a three inch spacing.

The first picture we are core aerating the Bermuda grass weak areas with a 3/4 inch hollow tine.

The second picture william is applying a light coat of usga tested topdressing to the putting surface. This will help with smoothness, thatch management, algae and provide better pore space around the crown of the plant, which will help with disease mangement.

The third picture we are blowing the sand down into the canopy. During the fall and spring we will be using a drag mat or Brush. During the summer we elect to blow the sand because it is less stressful to the bentgrass plant.
