Spring green up
Well, the sun is finally trying to break through the clouds that have been around all week. The final rain total for the week is around 5 inches. Besides having to pump the tunnel out every day, the bunker drainage performed wonderfully. For the first time in many years, we didn't have any standing water in any bunkers. This is a tribute to the agronomy staff's dedication and hard work during the renovations over the past few years.
The warm weather from last week and the soaking rain from this week have really encouraged the Bermuda to quickly come out of dormancy. Once we get past greens aeration next week, we will prioritize mowing of all surfaces to get our first wall to wall cut of the season.
