Turfcare Update

Everything is coming along nicely here at the Red Deer Golf and Country Club and just wanted to give everyone a quick update.

Monday June 30,2014 we will be venting the greens with the Planet AirHD 50 slicer/aerator. There should be very little disturbance to the greens surface and we will be playing immediately after the process.

The greens topdressing program this season seems to have worked out very well. We are topdressing a little more frequent and a little lighter. This is easier on our mowers as well as you members with very little disruption in play. We are in the process of pruning up a number of spruce trees on the course to give everyone a little better opportunity at a shot out if your ball happens to kick under a tree. This will take a period of time and will be ongoing until completed.

Construction on the new forward tee at number six has started and should be sodded by the beginning of next week at the latest.

Thanks everyone for staying out of the newly sodded area at number two and it should be back in play very shortly.

Remember …PLEASE fix ballmarks and REPLACE your divots. Maybe fix two?
