Limbing up trees, we started on #8 and 9.
We do this for a couple of reasons: 1. Allow the rough mower to get under the trees without cracking the limbs 2. Allow for better visibility of the course and the ability to find ones ball if it rolls under a tree 3. Allow for more sunlight to come through to promote healthy turf.
We have also been repairing our nursery area. This is the area to the left of #8 fairway. We grow rough, fairway and greens grass here. In the event that something happens on the course and we need to repair it with sod, we can take it from this nursery and have the golf course back in acceptable playing condition sooner than if we had to grow the area in from seed.
This is a yearly process. As we use it, we have to replant it so that we never run out. This area will be reseed in late August and grown-in during the fall.
