Week of May 2

This week on the golf course (now that the rain has ended) we will be spraying all of our native fescue areas for weeds.  We will also be spraying our greens and fairways with a special application that will prevent the little Poa Annua seed heads from flowering in late May and June.  By preventing the seed head formation it will provide a superior and much smoother playing surface and will actual conserve much of the plants energy going into the summer months.  Last week we cleaned up the storm damage on holes 1-7 and will continue with the clean up this week.

The restrooms on number 12 are still not open for the season because we are waiting for Consumers Energy to complete their tree trimming project from the recent storm.   The power lines along hole #8 supply electricity to our pump station and that restroom.  They are expected to complete their work by the end of the day on Tuesday.  The restrooms on hole #6 are open. 

We’ll see you on the course.
