July News


Hard to believe that this Tuesday marks the 10th Anniversary of when we opened the first nine (which is the back nine).  We will be holding a tournament to commemorate the anniversary Tuesday morning July 4th with a shotgun start at 8:30 so that everyone has time afterward to get to their Independence Day celebrations. The cost is $80 per player and includes an anniversary hat and magnetic koozie, 3 drink tickets, lunch and prizes. This will be a 4-person scramble and we will use the Red, White and Blue tee boxes in an interesting way to make it a fun event.

Superintendent's Corner
Our first aerification of the year is behind us now. The greens have recovered on time and are back to normal. On July 25th we will doing a very aggressive verti cutting on the greens. We must verti cut to help control grain and thatch. If the greens get an excessive amount of thatch it can lead to drainage, disease problems as well as bumpy ball roll. My team and I have been working aggressively to start chemically controlling our Dallis grass weed. We have made it around the entire front 9. We will begin to go back around and make a second application. Dallas grass is currently one of the most difficult weeds to control for the entire golf industry.
