Carolina's superintendents conference

This week I attended the conference in myrtle beach for education and trade show. Check the picture out below of the goosinator. Asking price, $3500.00. I think we will continue with the permits .

Topdressing tees

We have started to put sand down on all of the tees. Topdressing is very beneficial to diluting organic material as well as firming the surface. In a couple of weeks we will repeat this process.


This week we have been pressure washing and waxing all of out turf equipment, getting it ready for a long winters nap. We take great pride in our mowers and want them to last a long time. Come spring time they are ready to mow grass. In the next few months we will be doing all oil changes as well as grinding the reels. More on that later.

Dead trees

This week on the course we are taking a few pine trees down that died over the summer. We will also be taking down a few oaks that died as well over the winter.

Stump removal

We have rented a stump grinder this week to grind up 12 stumps on the course. This is part of our detail list of things to get done over the winter .

Cold weather

We have a few nights of cold air upon us. The whether today greeted us with an amazing sunset.

Fairway aerification

We will be aerating all fairways this month. We can only do a few fairways per week due to the clean up process and other duties/mowing of the course. We are still very busy brush cutting, tree limbing, painting the club house and mowing.
