Aeration - Almost done

Monday we finished 16 greens and if our truck load of sand was not delayed 4 hours we would have completed all of them.  Today if it dries enough we will complete the process on the greens.  We are aerating tees today.

The flood waters are gone and the grass is turning green.  We are on track to have the most rainfall ever for the month of April along with being on of the coldest Aprils on record.

No trees are leafing out and the daffodils are just starting to flower - weeks later than normal.

We did have some poa die on a few greens and will be addressing those spots in the weeks ahead.

We have also begun work in moving the cart path near #10 green to increase visibility at the intersection, redoing the back left bunker and adding access to the green from cart path (on the left).

Carts will be allowed soon - maybe Wednesday if we don't get any more rain! 

Aeration in progress - very labor intensive.  Holes are filled with sand.  This aeration is mainly about removing thatch, so we use lots of small holes (cores).

Compare this phone to the one taken a few days ago (see past postings)

My new screen saver - snow/ice on a fairway took the picture last week.
