#6, 7 & 8 Greeen Update

The early spring weather has been great for the course as we continue to regain mid season playing surfaces on #6, 7 and 8 Lake greens. The colder weather with several frosts/freezes in the last two weeks has slowed things down considerably but we have treated these greens a little differently that the rest and they are still growing and filling in nicely.  #6 is 100% back and #7 and 8 are right behind and will be back by mid May if not sooner.

I realize that tree removal is still a touchy issue with most Chautauquans and encourage those with questions to contact me. In past posts I've detailed why removal was necessary but it is always nice to hear this from other sources as well.  In the You Tube video below, Chris Tritabaugh of Northland Country Club in Minnesota articulates this very well.  Chris' blog is tagged as Northland Country Club Turfgrass Maintenance to the right of this blog as one I follow and is loaded with good information.  It's worth checking out.
