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.

Heavy Winds and Rain Hit Kinloch

On the night of Friday, April 19th, the Richmond area was hit with high winds and rain.  Upon arrival to the course, the maintenance staff discovered several trees had been uprooted and debris covered the course.  Cleanup began immediately on greens and fairways with a portion of the staff allocated to large tree removal.  The team was able to complete the work by the end of the morning.  Pictured below are a few examples of the downed trees and cleanup process.

What a Difference Three Weeks Makes

The Richmond area has seen beautiful weather in the month of April, and it has shown itself in the golf course. Pictured below are photos of number 7 and number 11.  The first picture of each hole was taken on April 1st while the second picture was taken three weeks later on April 23rd.  You can see a distinct increase in the amount of foliage on the trees as well as a much darker green in the grass.  With continued weather like this, Kinloch will be in ideal shape for the summer to come.
