Weeds!

I wanted to write a quick note explaining the current status of the weeds surrounding the golf course, and how we manage them.


A weed is defined by any plant that is growing in a location that is unwanted. I'm sure many of you have noticed the back 9 to have noticeably more weeds than the front 9. Our spray technician, that handles all herbicide applications on weeds, completed spraying the front 9 last week and has begun spraying the back 9 today. The amount of golfers, wind, and rain all impact our ability to spray. In addition, it takes about a day to get an entire hole surround sprayed out. This time of year, our spray technician sprays 5-7 days per week, weather and tee sheet permitting. Once he finished the back 9, he will return to the front, and this process is repeated forever. Luckily, weed pressure is lessened in the summer time, allowing us to catch our breath a bit.


If you have any further questions about this process please feel free to leave a comment below!
