|Tom removing the sod at the bottom of #13.|
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
One of our large area rough mowers had a large hydraulic hose leak at the right side bottom of the rough along #13. The leak was enough that we need to remove the old sod and replace it with some sod that we had near the green nursery. Usually, a narrow leak will heal itself pretty quickly and we will leave it alone but this leak was a foot wide or more in the area where it blew. Even though I do not like to add bermuda back on the golf course, it is the only thing that could possibly survive being laid at this time of year.
