We are rolling into January in good shape out on the course. The greens are healthy and show good coverage up top and root growth underneath. We will begin to post treat the Poa Annua on all the golf course in the coming weeks. For these treatments we will spray out certain areas of the course, depending on weather at different times. For example, on a closed Monday with low to no wind, is the best time to spray around greens. This prevents tracking from players walking through the product and then onto the greens. Rough can be sprayed anytime (wind permitting) and fairways on our less busy days.
The biggest thing happening in January is that our new Assistant Superintendent will be starting. On January 8th Tyler Collins will be joining our maintenance team. Tyler is a recent Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) graduate. He has worked at multiple golf courses and interned last summer at Pike Creek Sod Farm. Tyler comes with great references, who all speak highly of his work ethic. If you see him out on the course, please introduce yourself.
Please remember that while the grass is not actively growing, try to be aware of where you drive your carts and take different routes when possible. Also, as always please repair all ball marks and fill all divots.
