Yesterday we spiked number 12,15,17, and 18 fairways on the Weiskopf course. We will continue to do this on both courses as weather and time allows. This will help get air down to the roots and help them dry out a little. Every bit helps at this point in the season and the wet weather we have had. You can see it is very non disruptive after it has been mowed.

We are finding more and more dead grass caused by bug spray and sunscreen. Please use when on the cart path and especially not on the greens, tees or fairways. We have multiple spots now on fairways and tees with many more in the rough.

Tuesday night into Wednesday morning we received 1.6" of rain in about 30 minutes. The rain coming that fast on already saturated ground caused the creek on #4 Weiskopf to overflow and a drain at the approach to dump 2-3 inches of silt across that fairway. The crew did a great job cleaning it up and getting the hole playable Wednesday morning and it looks even better today after it was mowed. The rain came so fast that even the Better Billy Bunkers washed out fairly bad. They were all cleanup up and repaired by noon that day. Here are some pictures.
