First rye grass mowing

It has been 14 days since we over seeded the fairways with rye grass and aerated greens.  The golf course has held up nicely!  The greens have been sprayed with a growth regulator to aid with true and fast putting surfaces through out the remainder of the year.  The fairways will be fertilized later this week with a 1/2 lb of Nitrogen to support grow in of the rye grass.  We will follow up with a second application of fertilizer once the frost has shut down the Bermuda grass for the year  We have to be care full not to over stimulate the Bermuda grass during this time of the year while trying to establish the rye grass.  The first frost usually comes around the third week of October.
Mowing rye grass 10 days after seeding

The seeding has come up very uniformed and will make for good fall,winter and spring playing conditions
