For the golf course, this has caused a disruption in our planned maintenance, especially with respect to greens. Monday's are our single most important and busy day. The last few Mondays we have had overly wet conditions and/or high temps/humidity which have restricted planned maintenance. Our normal schedule is to every other week verticut, topdress and hand drag greens, on the other Monday's we needle tine aerify. In addition to that, we spray growth regulators, fungicides, and wetting agents typically on Monday's (but not the same Monday) as some of these have to be watered in to activate the product. This is just greens, but the same types of programs are also done on tees and fairways.
When we lose work on a Monday, the maintenance schedule is shifted out of sequence and the effect can sometimes be seen on the course. To most golfers they might see slower, bumper greens.
This past Monday, we played catch-up and verticut, hand topdressed, needle tine and hand dragged greens. This took up the full work day to complete - 10 hours, is our "normal" work day on Monday. The crew did great job and went home very tired. Unfortunately it was to wet for cutting rough, and we had to spend the day clearing the course of branches blown down in the storm Sunday night. We are now in the process of catching up on the rough and the greens are looking much better after finally being able to do some much needed maintenance.
