Rye overseeding to the fairways

Picture show rye seed on top of the playing surface. With several irrigation cycles the seed will fall into the canopy which will help to protect the young seedlings




Several light irrigation cycle will be programmed to speed up the process of the germination. It has been dry so it may take several more days thanks expected 


First mowing of the approaches. Mowing at higher heights. Mowing heights will be reduced in the next couple weeks as the temperature starts to cool down and there is less competition from the Bermuda 


Fairways being mowed for the first time. The process will be the same for the fairways as I mentioned for the approaches 

Bunker liner repairs


We have spent the last couple of weeks repairing bunker liners in several bunkers. This is a timely process but the liners do help with reducing contaminants and help prevent washouts.
