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.

Here Comes The Seed!

It has been one week since we aerified and overseeded the greens. We have an incredible amount of seed germinating on the greens which were overseeded in two directions. You will notice a "checkerboard" look created by the new overseeder. I am very pleased!
We have temporarily raised the height of cut and increased fertility levels to speed healing and give the juvenile seedlings the best chance at survival.
We will slowly start to lower the height next week which will aid playability without stressing the young creeping bentgrass. We are expecting more hot weather early next week so we will be cautious not to jeopardize our already excellent results.
Seed Germinating!
