It is an exciting time not only for golfers but also for the crew that has spent hours preparing the course for play. This weekend will provide some much needed feedback on where the greens are in relation to being able to handle the stress of traffic on the surface. The staff will be out evaluating how the grass handles traffic areas, ball marks, roll of the ball & other variables. The greens are still very immature as far as root growth is concerned and we are still encouraging a great deal of top growth which is in direct relation to root growth. This will mean the greens will be very slow and will not have the breaks and rolls that you would expect under normal playing conditions.
Thank you in advance for any feedback you provide.
