Update on practice facility (tee surface)

We are moving forward on making improvements to the turf with the following cultural practices.  We will be carrying out these procedures on maintenance Mondays.  This process began over a week ago by verticutting the tee deck, and we will continue this procedure through the golf season.  Starting in July, aerification, top dressing and overseeding will take place.  Divot mix will be applied to areas that are showing wear.  Fertilizer will be applied as needed based on growth and weather conditions.  Improvements may not be noticed immediately but with a focus on these practices, we will see better quality turf in the near future.

Gypsy Moths

Many of you have noticed we have been hit with a large infestation of the Gypsy Moth (currently in their caterpillar form).  The damage caused by these moths occur during their caterpillar stage, which is now coming to a completion.  They generally feed on the foliage of White Oaks but have also been known (when the population is high) to feed on any deciduous trees and surprisingly, even on some coniferous trees such as Spruce.  Chemical applications at this stage in their life cycle will do little if any to control the population.  As such, an aerial spray will be applied in early spring of 2019.
