Maintenance Blog May 2020 

I can’t say that I have ever been in a situation, in the golf industry, where at one point only a few weeks ago, I truly had no idea if the golf season was a go or not. The covid reality we are living in, has certainly changed the way we do things, in almost every aspect of our lives, and change is something we all have to embrace if we want to get back to some level of normal. That being said, there are changes to the way the game has to be played, and without any notice this can change for the better, or for the worse, depending on the guidelines that the government expects us to follow. My message to everyone is to be smart, and be safe!!!!

Due to the covid virus, things have changed in the way the maintenance department operates each day. We are constantly disinfecting and sanitizing equipment, while always trying to avoid contamination, and social distancing has become the norm for each day. Staff may not move from one piece of equipment to the other without sanitizing, and disinfecting.   We are doing our part, so please do yours!!!

On a positive note, the course has overwintered better than it has in years. We do have damaged greens, but there are no total right-offs as seen in past seasons. A small portion of the damage we received was from ice, and this will take longer to recover, but we also have a lot of tissue damage, that has already started to come back on its own. Often the turf we are losing is an inferior native grass called Poa annua, which gives us an opportunity to over-seed different varieties of a superior grass called bent-grass, which winters far better.  We are going to be temping, and tarping the thinnest greens for the first part of May, and these greens have been pushed hard already. The biggest issue we have to date is the cold and dry weather, that has stunted most of our recovery efforts. Just need some heat and a good warm rain, and conditions will change rapidly. Fairways and tees have made it through the winter quite well also, and will bounce back as the weather changes.

Opening day is not that far off, and all we need is a little cooperation from mother nature. It is always our goal to put together the best playing surface we can for you fine folks, with the focus on having the best greens that we can provide. As we move forward in May, I will give you a more detailed report on how things are going, and hopefully some more regulations will be lifted. Covid is not something to be taken lightly, so please be smart, and be safe!!!

Mountain Woods Golf Club Maintenance Blog September 2019

August Newsletter 2019 for Mountain woods Golf

            So, its September already, and heading to October rapidly!!! Where did August go??? I am trying to recall August but just can not seem to remember most of it for some reason. Maybe my dogs have taken control of the brain. LOL. In the turfgrass industry, August is often seen as a transition month, where you tend to get into cruise control, which leads to some pretty uneventful moments. The truth is that August was a great month for the course, in terms of weather actually cooperating with certain cultural practices that had to be done, and we had just enough rain from time to time to help keep things green out there. I did not have to irrigate very often either, which is always a bonus. Some are saying that this is the best they have ever seen Mountain woods, which is great for the reputation of the club and gives you folks bragging rights!!!! I will always say that it has a long way to go!!!
            Greens:            I must say, it has been a lot more fun maintaining the putting surfaces with the new foliar program. It has allowed healthier surfaces, with growth control in humidity, which has led to better cut quality and overall better surfaces that are consistent throughout the day. Because the weather actually did cooperate, we were able to topdress heavily twice, which really smoothed the greens surfaces. Maybe a bit too quick for some, but the speed we ran the past 4-6 weeks is really where I like the speed to be. For the upcoming Rodger Burns Invitational, they are going to be as fast as the weather permits. Hoping to be around 12-13 on the stimp for this tournament!!! I hope you have been enjoying the greens this year. They are not perfect but are pretty good. One thing I would like to share with you is my feelings, and the industry’s feelings on the flagstick left in while putting rule change. I feel that this is by far one of the dumbest rule changes that the PGA has ever come up with. There was no consideration for the turfgrass maintenance departments who have to deal with torn cup edges. When the flag is left in, there is no room to put your hand in and pull a ball out, without tearing the cup edge. Also, a lot of golfers use the flagstick, in a rapid upward movement, to remove the ball, which really tears the edges. Most golf courses do not have enough staff to change cups daily, this one included. So please take the flag out. The laws of physics dictate that if a hole is smaller, then there is statistically less chance of the ball going in it!!!
            Tees:                just recently I have been testing a new wetting agent for the tees, that allows for better water penetration, and retention, which has allowed better divot recovery. It is an inexpensive option for this club and is something that is sustainable.  After the application was done, there was an immediate response in the turf health, and filled divots germinated much faster. The tees also required less water and were still able to stay green. Unfortunately, many of our tee decks are actually too small to handle the amount of traffic that goes through Mountain woods, but there are long-term plans to improve some of them. Don’t forget to fill your divots. One person I should mention is one of our hardworking staff named Louis Snyder. Louis has the morning routine job to get tee deck areas ready, and divot mix made and topped up. This year Louis decided to ramp up his efforts and has been filling divots as part of the morning routine. Its has made a huge difference. Thanks, Louis.
            Fairways:          This year, with just a little bit more rain, we have been able to provide better fairways, than any other year. There is still a lot of knot-weed problems, but turf is winning, and the knot-weed will be sprayed on specific fairways shortly. I have also been testing the same wetting agent used on the tees, on a few trouble fairways we have. The fairways 1,3,4,5,6 were treated recently, and there have been some great results, that make the future management of these areas a lot more promising. We are always trying something on these areas to improve the playability. Thanks for following the 90-degree rule!!!
            The last few weeks of the season, as we progress into Fall, are often the ones that the crew enjoy the most. Temperatures are cooler, and the turf is actually a bit easier to maintain. Over the next few weeks, there will be a lot of preparation for the Rodger Burns tournament, and we are still trying to clean-up from the weekend tropical storm. I would like to thank the volunteers, Don Perron and Danny Morash, for coming out and helping us with cart path washouts.  I hope you guys didn’t need too much physio after that day!!! And we didn’t even get you a coffee!!! Anytime, if any of all of you fine folks feel the urge to get some physical exercise, just let us know. We have an entire forest full of branches, down-falls, etc… Until next time!!!!

A lot of the course looked like this after the storm!!!

Shop area after the storm.. This is a lot deeper than the picture shows. The shop flooded also.

Part of a color test done this year on #8 green. Looks pretty good..

Mountain woods closed due to weather related damage

Sunday, September 8th, 2019

Due to a large amount of olf rain. the golf course sustained damage in the form of washed-out cart paths and some downed trees. All in all, the golf course will be fine in a few days. The grounds crew will have considerable cleanup work ahead of them.

The golf course will remain closed today and Monday until our scheduled men's night at 5 pm. 

The men's night banquet will proceed after the men's night round of golf. Dinner should be served at roughly 7:30 for those of you who choose to forego the 9 holes of golf considering the extremely wet conditions.
