Tee slicing

Embedded image permalink

This week, the staff is decompacting tee boxes using the Aerway shattertine machine.  This is the same unit we used on fairways a few weeks ago.  The shattertines torque as they go into the ground which helps loosen and fracture the soil.  The tees are then mowed to clean up the tufts left behind.  Doug, our chemical applicator, is following the slicing project with an organic fertilizer to encourage some more growth.  Once the weather starts cooperating and begins to warm up, the tee boxes should start to fill in quickly.

Rotary Presentation

This afternoon, I had the pleasure of speaking to the Owasso Rotary Club about two passions of mine: golf and the environment.  I appreciate them allowing me to speak and they were a great audience.  I've embedded a copy of the presentation below for those who are interested.
