Fans and Rye transition

Today we finished installing greens fans around 10 greens.  We have added 2 new fans this year to 3 and 16 green.  The picture below is the fan located behind 16 green.
The fans will provide air movement and provide some cooling for the bentgrass putting greens.  These fans enhance the health of the grass and help assist the maintenance crew to manage the greens through-out the summer months 

Here is a picture of number 11 approach that was overseeded with rye for winter color and playability.  The 95+ temperatures are putting a hurting on the rye grass.  This is the normal process and most all areas will be filled in and covered by the first part of July.
