Supplies are now being hauled off the course on Greywalls and then the turf will be prepared for winter and that irrigation system will be winterized. I hope everyone enjoyed the 2011 season on Greywalls.

The Heritage will be open until the 31st, then we will have to prepare those surfaces for the winter month.

Heritage Irrigation winterization/blowout is now going into day three. It is taking us a little longer this year because we had to use a 185cfm compressor this year; the 375cfm we have been using was out on a long term rental.
To complete the Greywalls system winterization/blowout, we have to use an 825cfm compressor in order to have enough volume to get up to and back to the front nine from the hook up port at our pumphouse.

With the poor weather last week we were forced to move Tee aerification on Greywalls to this week.
We completed the Back nine tees today and will do the Front nine tees tomorrow. Tomorrow will be a back nine start on the Greywalls course so we can complete the process.

Our first snowmold fungicide application on the Greens occured yesterday on Greywalls and will happen tomorrow on the Heritage course. This application will keep them clean of disease until we make our final application after we close for the season.

wind storm

The great wind storm we had last Thurs. night took out 25 trees (uprooted many of them) and left us with no power for 3 days at the club. It was interesting.
