Course Update
 

March is having a difficult time figuring out which way to go in 2018. The few sunny days we have been able to enjoy more often than not have been punctuated by brief snow squalls and blistering winds.  Prior to this, winter had pretty much lived up to it’s reputation with colder than average temperatures in December and January.  February broke winter’s grip with record breaking rains.  Through all of this, the grounds staff has been keeping busy with renovation projects, scheduled winter maintenance, as well as snow and ice removal throughout the club.

When the weather has been reasonable, our crew has been working through one of our most ambitious bunker renovation campaigns to date.  Renovation of bunkers on holes 17, 16, 14, 13, and 10 will be wrapping up in the near future, ready for our opening days.  Much like our bunker renovation projects throughout the course, we are giving the Chipping green a much needed makeover.  Utilizing the footprint of the existing facility, we reimagined the space to mimic shots most encountered on the course.  Highlights include a single large sand bunker, as well as intermediate, fairway, and rough height turf.  Work is beginning to wind down at the site and given good growing weather, the facility will be available for member use in mid to late April.   

Many times, harsh weather conditions warrant days working inside the shop. Refurbishment of all course accessories, from the rope stakes to bunker rakes, is undertaken at this time.  We also utilize these “shop days” to thoroughly clean and inspect our entire equipment fleet to ensure efficient and seamless operation during the golf season.  

You may have heard the buzz, but Wildwood Golf Club will be home to three bee hives starting this spring.  Following a Pro Pollinator initiative put forth by the USGA and Bayer Agro Science, hives of docile Italian and Carniolan bees will benefit our local ecology, serving as a crucial vector in plant development.  All hives will be clearly marked with signage, registered with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, and will be managed according to Best Management Practices put forth by our local Beekeeping Association.  Careful placement of hives in far reaching corners of our property will ensure little chance of human contact.

Course aerification is scheduled for March 26-28.  Our Greens aerification program extracts soil cores, therefore diluting the amount of thatch in the root zone.   Backfilling the holes with topdressing sand provides an oxygen rich root zone for the plant.  Biannual completion of this procedure is critical to the season long playability of the greens.  If left unchecked, thatch accumulation can make the greens feel spongy, increasing the likelihood of mechanical damage from our mowers.  Thatchy greens also have a greater water holding capacity, and just like houseplants, turf doesn’t like wet feet.  Given good weather conditions, our Spring recovery times have been in the 10-14 day range.  Thank you for your patience as we lay the foundation for 2018’s greens!

XGD Greens Drainage is scheduled for the first week of April on the putting green, 10 green, and 8 green.  Undulations and pockets on these greens can lead to excessive ponding following rain events, resulting in delays in play.  Completion of this procedure in years past has yielded excellent results on greens 11, 16, 1, and 6.  Expert installation ensures the greens surface is flawless upon completion, immediately ready for play. 
 
Early spring weather patterns can have a great effect on cart policy.  Please adhere to the daily cart policy information put forth by the Golf Pro Shop.   Feel free to contact me with questions regarding these or any other Greens and Grounds related topics at 412-487-1234 or tfisher@wildwoodgolfclub.org.  Also, find us on Instagram, @wgc_greens for photos of green grass, Abbey, course projects, and spring flowers (hopefully sooner rather than later!).  Thanks and Think Spring!
