A New Season & the Masters

The New Season

Only in our good ole state of Michigan can we have a colder April than December, thus far.  We opened our doors on March 18th with great enthusiasm and have been battling Mother Nature ever.

Course Update 4/25/2014

Last week's weather pushed back a couple of projects to this week, making a hectic yet productive week. On Monday we sprayed greens with a fertilizer "cocktail" to encourage growth. With the cool temperatures that we have had, the bentgrass is just sitting around so we decided to give it a little kick. Below you can see an unsprayed area(check plot) on #13 green and the difference in color..

On Tuesday Murin Company came in to install some drainage. I have worked with them for.

We Are Open!

We couldn't have asked for a better spring thaw. No flooding and no ice from the river. Double bonus. The greens and tees came out very healthy, the fairways have some spots of snow mold and vole damage but should grow out very quickly. We have been busy with course clean up and have almost everything "between the ropes" cleaned up which are primary rough, greens, tees and fairways.

We will continue with course clean up over the next couple of weeks. We will also be doing some.
