Greens and Disease Update

We have seen good responses to the fungicide treatments we have made for the "Pythium" on several of the greens.  This is a good sign.  The staff has done a great job keeping the plants cool and have provided small amounts of water through-out the day to keep the grass growing in these areas.  We do have some thin areas which was contributed from the disease activity and high day and night temperatures.  I feel these areas will recover during cooler temperatures along with a "beefed"up fertility program.  Good recovery can not be expected until later this month

The greens were vented on Monday, August 1st using a 9mm solid tine. The spacing was at 3 inches.  This helps to give the roots of the bent grass plant some fresh air and oxygenfor better health and recovery.
