Golf Course News


Course Update

If not for the sound of school busses, you’d have a hard time believing it’s nearly November.  Fantastic weather throughout the fall is providing great opportunities to get out and enjoy the course.    As is the case every autumn, a large portion of our daily work schedule is devoted to leaf cleanup and removal.  High maintenance playing surfaces must be completely clean of leaves and debris prior to daily mowing.  That means on any given day, employees expediently clear 25 acres of fairway, 2 acres of tees, and 3 acres of greens just to perform our mowing practices prior to daily tee times.  Staff levels typically drop off this time of year as our seasonal student help is back to school.  Fortunately the experience of our core crew makes this formidable task a little more manageable.   Frost delays pose another challenge this late in the season.  Frost sets in on turf and other surfaces in the cold early morning hours, which is prime time to get a head start on our mowing for the day.  Such delays restrict the amount of time we devote to important tasks like rough mowing.  To maximize the value of our rough mowing operation, we maintain mowing frequency in areas adjacent to corridors of play while placing secondary emphasis on rough areas well outside of play. 
Even though the golf season is drawing to a close, project season is heating up.  Sand injection on the greens is scheduled for Monday October 30.  This contracted procedure is analogous to core aerifcation without any of the mess or recovery time.  Pressurized sand is injected into the greens soil profile, increasing water infiltration rate and aeration porosity, both critical to turf health.  The green is playable immediately after the procedure with very little surface disturbance.  Later in the month, internal greens drainage will be installed on the putting green, 3 green, and 10 green.  Existing Greens Drainage, or XGD, has been completed on a number of our greens in the past, and provides benefits from an internal drainage standpoint.  As evidenced in this summer’s frequent rains, ponding on putting surfaces delays play and can cause turf decline if left unchecked. Installation of drainage will shorten delays, and make the turf healthier and better able to withstand daily stress.  Crews will be working on one green at a time, resulting in closure of that green for the time being.  The greens will be reopened for play immediately following completion of the procedure with virtually no putting surface disruption.  We can anticipate approximately 3-4 days of work on these greens start to finish.  Additional course improvements include replacement of our driving range net along Sample Road and before long we will continue our bunker renovation campaign with improvements coming at 13 green, 16, and 17.  Utilizing in house labor, we will remove the sand from these bunkers, reestablish drainage where necessary, and backfill with fresh new sand creating a less laborious bunker to maintain in season.
Shorter days and cooler temperatures have a long lasting effect on soil moisture, the main driver in day to day cart policy decisions.  During periods of inclement weather, please adhere to cart policy as stated by the Pro Shop.  In general, avoid fast starts and stops, sharp turns, and driving through our native rough areas. 
Please feel free to contact me regarding these or any other greens and ground topics.  I can be reached in the office at 412-487-1234 or via email, tfisher@wildwoodgolfclub.org.  Thanks and see you on the course!
