Record Setting Temps and Day Time Irrigation

Another year, another record setting July! Sure, this weather is to be expected, but that doesn't make it any easier to sustain 72.59 acres of turf! Bermudagrass thrives in warm temperatures, but thrives even more in humidity. So, how do you create humidity when it's 116 degrees but humidity is under 25%? Day time irrigation is how.

I'm sure you have noticed the small portable sprinkler heads peppered around the golf course, as well as the occasion in ground sprinkler head running during play. This is to keep humidity levels up, in areas that need just a little more help filling in.

When you come across these areas, play them as ground under repair. This will give these areas a break from play, and eliminate the need for you to dodge a sprinkler head in your back swing!
