One blue repair
The cool weather has given us some relief from hand watering. We have taken the opportunity to address this situation. Shown below is a profile of the area. The problem area has very little topsoil and a heavy grey clay underneath. We are excavating this area and will replace it with topsoil. While it remains close to the path and the tree-line, we are finding some tree roots, but believe the soil composition is the greater problem. After .7" of rain last night, this photo of the clay was taken, it is bone dry.
We will be aerifying greens next week, weather permitting.
Closing scramble this Sunday, call today to get in!!! Great format!!
Awesome prizes! Free beer!
