Welcome to my blog!
It is my intention to give the readers a better understanding of what we do to maintain The Farms Country Club's 18 hole championship golf course and grounds.

Check Out The Air Bubble in #9 Fairway!

We had 1.5 inches of rain overnight. The course is open today but carts must stay on paths.
Occasionally when we experience heavy rains, we get small patches of turf which separate from the soil beneath. There is a pocket of air trapped between the turf and the underlying soil. We release the air by cutting the turf with a knife. The turf lays back down and everything is fine.
