Spread cores from the good green on number 18 that we haven't messed with yet. We'll see how it does. Front nine still getting better but slowly.

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.

Hmmm. That wouldn't be a bad idea for me to put in at home. I have the land and some farm equipment so it wouldn't be hard to do.

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.

Really cool. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks.

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.

Labor day has come and gone cool nights ahead!!

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.

repeate after me.. fungicides and fans are my friends lol. Good job they look really good.

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.

Tip of the hat for all the hard work and pride you take. Great thread.

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."

    • I love putting and I'm generally considered to be a good putter, so a few things that might help: At the level you are trying to play, shooting 80, a median miss should be about 10% of distance (a tour pro is 5%). So from 40 feet you should be within 4 feet at least half the time, from 20 feet you should be within two half the time. So, and I'm making this up a little bit, if you are regularly more than 6-8 feet from 40 feet or more than 4 feet from 20 feet, you should work on your lag putting. As someone else said, make sure you're realistic. I spent a winter practicing 30 foot putts in my basement. I got better at them. I make more, but not enough to ever notice in my score. I spent another winter hitting, and I do not exaggerate, thousands of 7 foot putts (that's the amount of carpet I had to work with). My make putting got better and I could see it in my scores. For me I think of an 8 footer (3 steps) as a make putt, maybe extend to 10-15 feet for an easy uphill putt and shorten to 5 feet on fast downhill putts. Everything else is a lag where it's a bonus if it goes in.
    • But you'll never find me after dark driving without a headlight or brake light.  Until I replace the dang bulb my dash illuminates and dings every time I start the car. Worse than a check engine light.
    • CBS is announcing that Tiger is being transferred to another hospital. We use to call them idiot lights (no... really!)
    • I do like that it tells me precisely which bulb is burned out.  Wish it would warn me of the labor costs for replacing a Xenon headlamp.
    • Since it's an Audi, I'm fairly certain you'll get a chance to see all of those warning lights soon enough
