Video below discusses our ongoing Bermuda eradication work within our fairway and intermediate. I could not be more pleased with the results we are having but we must continue to reduce the Bermudas ability to spread by pounding it with our chemical treatments before fall sets in and it goes dormant. Hopefully mother nature will give us some help this winter and freeze more of it out!

Well, The Invitational 2016 will be here in the morning. Would not be right if I did not show last year's dog walk up the hill to begin Day 2. Not much to it except watching an old dog work hard getting up a big hill. My girl Ladybug loved a party and this is one big party she was not going to miss. Thought 2014 was going to be her last one but she fought through to last summer and into this spring and almost made it to another one. I sure do miss her! The cover picture on the blog I believe was from last year.
Well, its here. Invitational 2016. Not many issues from the storms yesterday except a bunch of small debris. For those of you who go back a few years. A little musical interlude as you prepare for today's festivities!

Video updating Bermuda eradication work. We did lose a few pieces of sod from our earlier replacement and will be removing in next couple of days. Other than that, work is going as good as can be expected. Next spray will be after MAGA Amateur in early August. Can't stop, won't stop till its gone!
