What a beautiful spring! In my 13 years in the golf course maintenance business, the grass has greened up quicker and grown faster than any year that I can recall. We are trying to keep the golf course conditions as consistent as we can, but training new employees and frequent rainy weather leave us scratching our heads. The golf course received bulk fertilizer application on the 8th and 9th of April to spread fertilizer, crabgrass control and grub control. This is the first year that fertilizer companies have started attaching grub control onto fertilizer. It is also the first year that we have been able to control grubs in the rough grass. I am looking forward to the great results that are expected. As most of you know and have seen, we have started the new irrigation system. Feel free to read the next blog for a more detailed plan.
