Happy first day of President's Cup

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so check out the last photo, it explains the others. This is a tiny insight into some of the conversations we have at the club. The water had to be shut off to the bathrooms as the plumbing is behind the cinder-block wall. We will have to break out the wall to make the repair, so the bathrooms will be closed for a few days. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.
Good luck to all the Presidents Cup participants. Come check out the shootout Sunday afternoon around 2:30, it is a great event!

Dedos to the rescue?

The Dedos machine, shown below has been one of my favorite machines at Briar. I use it for a variety of situations.
We are running it today to try and help with our dry spots. The small slices it is putting in the turf will be treated with wetting agents and then hand watered in. As the photos show, these areas are still dry. The rain has not infiltrated into the hydrophobic areas.
With the humid weather and storms forecasted, we don't want to risk overwatering, therefore treating these areas with hand watering is again necessary.
There are many of these areas on each fairway.
War has been declared,
