We are off to a fast start to the 2012 golfing season.    I would like to start my first blog by highlighting a few changes that we have started here at Minor Park. Hopefully you have seen the new tee features, if so we removed all of the red pavers and edged around the ball washer and hole sign.  When I get my shipment of mulch in, we will be mulching those areas to complete the look. Hole #2 shows the finished product.   We began last week mowing our rough at the height of 3 inches.  As many of you know is has taken off very quickly and we are doing our best to get around as quickly as possible.  We also were able to get carts off path last weekend allowing us to get out our new signage to help direct traffic a bit easier.  We also added 150 stakes in the middle of fairways to help identify yardage for the golfers. On the cultural side we got out dimension plus fertilizer in our rough (grassy weed control), and also applied our second application of Primo/Proxy (seed head suppression) and Fungicide to our Greens.  We will begin aerification on the evening of April 8th and continue through the 10th   I hope you are enjoying the new Minor Park and I hope you play often.
