Well it feels like August already and the syringe team is out in full force. Syringing is a term used to describe the application of water on Bentgrass greens during the hottest part of the day to reduce heat stress. This watering is done very lightly and multiple times a day. The agronomy staff has been trained to stay out of the way of golfers as much as possible, but there are times when we have no choice but to water in between groups. We ask that whenever you see someone watering a green in front of you, and they have pulled the flagstick, that you please give them a minute to finish before you hit your approach shot. No one likes to get hit with a golf ball and we certainly do not enjoy holding up play. We thank you for your patience and look forward to a great summer.
