We developed this blog to provide golf course maintenance information to our members. From projects, small and large, to updates on course conditions, we want to provide as much information as possible. Although we hope this blog answers all of the pertinent questions regarding our operation, we always welcome more personalized dialogue. If you have questions beyond the information found on this blog, feel free to contact our golf course superintendent, Trevor Hedgepeth.

Bentgrass Eradication Update

As of today, we have sprayed two applications of Tenacity herbicide on our ryegrass intermediate cut to eliminate bentgrass contamination. Monday morning we will begin seeding all of the intermediate cut to perennial ryegrass. The ryegrass will germinate within a week and in a couple of weeks we will begin mowing it and grooming the intermediates back to our desired heights. Once we have mowed the intermediate cut a few times we will spray it again to clean up the remaining bentgrass. Temperatures look great next week for this project!
