Thankfully this cold stretch of weather will be in the rear view mirror soon. The long term forecast looks very favorable for growing grass and playing golf!
The warmer weather and rain we are expecting will help heal up the greens.
Some greens are filling in well and others still need a touch of sand. I tried a different method of topdressing this year and the results on some of the greens were less than ideal. I hope to start cutting with a sharp set of reels on the greens soon so you should see an improvement in speed and ball roll.
Good new to share! We have passed all the competencies for ACSP! Later this year they will do a site visit and we will be the only 9 hole course in Connecticut to be a Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary golf course. Quite an achievement and i have to thank Fran and Vince for all their help!
A pair of kestrels have taken up residence in the box down between 8 & 9. Another great environental stewardship project that is making a difference!
Once the warm weather arrives it will be very busy for us and ill try to update again when i have something noteworthy to share. In the mean time please replace your divots on the tees and fairways.
Ill see you out in the fairways!
