New green progression - Page 4

post #55 of 68

I am absolutely fascinated by this thread.  Thanks for posting.  Glad to see business is steady enough to keep the doors open.  Nice work.

Yeah the only thing that has a chance is if some poa seeds ended up in there. I would consider the nursurey green it wouldnt cost that much. you only need 6 inches of top mix since you are not putting in any cups.

Yeah it's amazing how that much bare ground can fill it like that. Also amazing how complete that winter kill was and how places that we haven't touched yet are still dead.

 

Like this back tee box that we aren't using that I took a picture of yesterday.

The greens are filled in pretty well except 18 (and it doesn't lack much).

 

Plugged areas now puttable.

Number 15.

And 18 that we started playing on Saturday.

I'm sure that it has been a lot of work but the results speak for themselves. Must be rewarding to see your efforts paying off.

Hoping we don't ever have to repeat it. :-D Since we see it everyday it even surprises me when I look at the difference from the early pics and how much filled in.

 

I'm just glad that now I'm making some putts and when I miss it's my fault instead of not knowing if it was me or the green.

 

There have been more golfers the last couple of weeks and we are hoping for a good holiday weekend this week.

Pretty good considering it was also the start of football season. (Thank goodness for DVR). ;-)

Sooner or later. ;-)

 

All of this rain we are getting every afternoon is really growing the fairways and rough. Having to mow much of the Bermuda rough in granny low and go over it twice to keep it from looking like a hayfield.

Greens are pretty good now so these will probably be my last pics of them.

 

Still a slight mix of Bermuda and but since we over-seeded with bent a few weeks ago (and the weather is cooler) the bent is becoming the more dominant grass. They should be good bent greens next year.

 

If there is any place in the South that calls for bent grass it's right here. In hindsight I would have to say that the Bermuda experiment was a failure. Even thought the Bermuda greens were very nice there is just too much chance of winter kill here on the mountain. Truthfully we don't have nearly the summer problems with bent grass that most places in the South have anyway.

Thanks.

+1 to the fungicides. ;-) We don't have or use any fans and rarely would need them except for one green in a bowl to watch pretty closely. Wind almost always blows at the course and the summer daytime temps are 8 to 10 degrees lower than in the valley. (I don't even have an air conditioner).

 

I hate those fans anyway. Ruins my peace and quiet. Reminds me I have a rule question on those fans I need to ask or look up in the rules forum.

Thanks. Maybe next year will be better. My boss always says that "The hole and the greens are the most important part of the golf course because that's the final destination."
