|We had completed part of the practice green area near the pro shop and looked at the Pearson Lane side and had to clean it up as well. Aerified it heavily and then put a couple yards of compost in place to help soil structure a little.|
|From the pro shop walk way. Did a larger cut out of zoysia neared Doc Ott's clock area.|
|Finished the area between the bunkers. Still have to repair the sod trench line from new irrigation.|

The mowing of greens are becoming more regular along with rolling. The first mowing of rough, tees, tee surrounds, fairways occurred this week and bunkers were trimmed up. Finishing up on our pre-emergent applications and we do have a great deal of broad leaf weed control that will take place over the next couple of weeks. Dandelions, clover and some cool season weed control.
We did some finish grading around the new 2 tee complex. Trying to get our laser leveling contractor in over the next week. We are going to have to dig out part of the back tee. The soil is soft and pumping so we will dig it out this morning and put some good hard Glen Echo clay in its place. Little video below showing the smoothed out area.
Update on the repair to the back of the tee. Dug out a 10' x 12' section of the back of the tee this morning and back filled with some Glen Echo clay. The soil that was originally used was excessively wet and plastic like not allow the surface to firm and ultimately would have settled. The new soil should improve the situation.
|Skip dug out about 2' of fill that ended up being too plastic/rubbery.|
|Back filled, packed and smoothed over.|
