This morning, the staff began cutting out some weak areas around the outside of #12 green. These spots were the last remaining damage from the Leaf Spot outbreak we saw earlier this spring. As you can see from the picture to the right, there was a sizable spot in the approach, which we were glad to remove. There are also spots in the collar and along the backside of the green on both sides of the fan. Despite the intense heat, the staff did a great job finishing up the whole surround by the end of the day.
Please keep out of these areas as much as possible while playing through #12. Reducing the foot traffic in these areas will ensure a quick grow in. Once the sod roots in, we will begin to lower the height of cut down to the necessary level.
