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.

Bermudagrass Progress

We continue to see great relults in all of the bermudagrass areas on the golf course. The herbicide sprays are weakening the bermudagrass and stunting rooting and stolon growth. We will continue to spray these areas through the first hard frost. Our hope is to send the bermudagrass into winter as weak as possible and with very few stored carbohydrates.
As you can see in this picture, the tall fescue that we have seeded into the bermudagrass right of ten green is germinating nicely. Holes ten, eleven and thirteen have the greatest concentration of bermudagrass in the rough, and the thirteenth hole was the last area we seeded. You will see drastic differences in these areas over the next couple of weeks.
