Killdeer Nest on Cart Path


If you look closely, there are 2 Killdeer eggs on the cart path on #13.  Killdeer are small birds that tend to live on the edge of ponds and will make a lot of noise as you approach.  I put a cone in front.  They should hatch soon.
#4 fairway. It's finally drying out enough to get back to regular mowing.  This week we plan on finishing bunker work and turning on the irrigation.  We also need to catch up on rough mowing.

Carts on Monday

Monday should be dry enough for cart traffic.  On Sunday, Jose and I mowed the greens for the first time since last Monday.  We plan on mowing tees, fairways and greens again on Monday.  As I also would like to spray greens.  I would like this accomplished because rain is expected again on Tuesday.  We will wait on bunker work until after the rain.  With a small crew, we can't waste effort on something the will be ruined with rain.  There is still much clean-up to be done.  The rough is starting to get long and dandelions will flower soon.  On Wednesday and Thursday, I picked a couple of good days to be away from the course.  I needed to recertify my pesticide license.

Greens Mowing Set For Thursday

Saturday, we had a special guest.

I mowed a couple of greens today to check the quality of cut. As you can see, there is green under the brown tips.  We will mow all greens on Thursday.  Bunkers were started and will be finished on Thursday.  Bunker rakes are set out as they finish.
