Cool Temps and Recovery

The cooler temperatures this last week, coupled with some rain, have enabled a lot of the areas that were hard hit this summer to recover quite a bit. Unfortunately, there were areas that the grass died. We aerified some of these areas and put some bentgrass seed down. In the early morning, with dew on the grass, you can see the bentgrass coming up in the aerifer holes. The predominate grass in these areas was Poa annua. Getting some bentgrass to establish will help keep these spots from declining in the future.

Here are a couple of pictures of one of these spots on #16 fairway.
