Name that cause!

It seems the summer is finally catching up to us a little bit.  Some of the fairways were hit this past week with two different types of fungus - anthracnose and pythium.  You will see the most damage on 3 and 16 were the fairways narrow by the fairway bunkers.  All the traffic comes through these areas and puts a lot of stress on the plants.  We have treated all of the fairways with a curative application and with the help of some cooler temps, they will recover.  Overall the course still looks great and is hanging in there.


Anthracnose damage

Dry area, no fungus present
