  1. this ^^^^^^^ Tom Watson said one time that he set the course record at Kansas City CC a day after the greens were aerated
  2. a lot of times designers use bunkering to frame a hole and provide visual interest and sometimes they use them for aiming points. as for ponds and no mow areas in front of tees it is what it is.
  3. I am well aware of this. I have been a golf course supt. for 25 years. here is the article where that quote Mr Davis made. http://www.golfdigest.com/golf-courses/golf-travel/2012-05/golf-in-australia-geoff-shackelford.
  4. yeah different agronomic conditions play a huge role for sure. fond it interesting when Mr Davis said "They're a little bit like golfers in the U.K. in the sense that they just don't overdo their maintenance, and the expectations of golfers aren't quite as high in terms of having perfect wall-to-wall conditions, which directly is reflected in the cost to play the game,"
  5. repeate after me.. fungicides and fans are my friends lol. Good job they look really good.
  6. welcome to TV golf and keeping up with the jones' Pretty much every superintendents nightmare ^^^^^^
  7. Labor day has come and gone cool nights ahead!!
  8. maybe the syringed the greens earlier who knows
  9. If the person is using it as a spray indicator the chemical being sprayed dictates what you do with it. say your were spraying a fungicide that has to dry on the plant like daconile. you wouldnt be able to "hose it off". usually the dye dries pretty quick unless there is a heavy dew or the alike
  10. yeah it could be this. also many new chemicals civitas is one that has a pigment dye that is a activator. there are also turf sunsceens that are colored as well. I have used the above in the past and they work great.
  11. 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.
  12. those plugs really spread and healed great! you guys building a big nursery yet?
  13. I cant begin to tell you how many members have tried this. when they actually do it they didnt realize the cost and time to maintain it. After a year they all gave up. not to sound like a negative nelly but do yourself a favour and go synthetic. Pencross has been a stand by for along time but there are many better varieties out there like T-1, L-93 or any of the A series
  14. not 100% positive but I think your homeowners insurance will cover it. samr thing happened to a friend of mine and his covered it.
  15. mother nature can be a fickle bitch sometimes thats for sure
  16. if they are trying to restore the layout to original then cut the trees that were added. it can be a tough sell as many people have a love affair with any and all trees.
  17. ya i would say bent must be struggling this time of year
  18. those rollers are wacky to drive lol
  19. If you are getting good recovery from what you have done so far. I wouldnt sprig yet
  20. so are you going to try some in house spriging
  21. trust me when I say economics have caused all superintendents to do and not do what they want or think is right
  22. I am not to familar with southern turf. Is it hot enough to germinate bermuda yet?
