Preparations for winter are well under way. Greens height has been raised to .140” from our summer height of .115”. We give the greens a little bit of a beard for the winter months to help protect against desiccation. Greens, Tees, and Fairways will be provided protection against winter snow mold and this protection will be applied around the week of November 12th. The irrigation system will be drained on November 1st. Some of the open Greens will receive heavy topdressing as added protection or a perforated, breathable cover.
