Cool season turf growth

It's now just over three weeks since summer aeration and greens have healed nicely. Green speeds are back in the normal range of expectation and we are looking forward to a great fall season on the course.

The above slide illustrates the growth curve of cool season grasses. As you can see, July is not the
best time for us to be aggressive as growth is limited both above and below the surface during the stress of summer. Due to a busy fall event season this was our last chance to open things up and incorporate some much needed new sand. 60 tons of new sand to be exact! Needless to say we were quite happy to have the weather cooperate with below average temperatures over the last few weeks.

Enjoy your time out there and we hope to see you on the course!
