We finally got rain on Saturday night. 1.1 inches brought the month total to 1.2. We also got a little rain on Friday. It gave us a break from hand watering. We are keeping up with watering of greens, tees and fairways, but as you can see the banks and rough are starting to go dormant. We are limiting cutting of the deep rough until we get more rain. The irrigation has been working well. I've pumped almost as much as the entire 2011season. The lake level is starting to go down. The next week should also be dry, but temps should be cooler.
This week, we are preparing for the fireworks on Saturday. Many vendors and members have donated money to make this possible. Thank You!
Over the next couple of weeks, I'm going to introduce you to my staff. Above is Juan. He works from mid March until Thanksgiving. He's been on the staff since 2008 and does a variety of jobs including greens, tees, fairways, rough, bunkers and hand watering.
