March 28--We have placed some covers on the back of 2 green, 4 green and putting green to help those areas pop out of dormancy. The covers should help keep soil temps up and trigger some growth. These are some of our areas of most concern so we want to get the grass growing there for a couple of reasons. First if the grass is alive it will get a head start on growing and getting healthier. The greens in general are very weak and are not showing much vigor even in areas of protection where the stand is relatively intact. The other reason for covering is it should give us a better idea how much winterkill there is and thus give us a better idea on our remedy. If need be we may utilize these covers through April in areas that need reseeded to hasten recovery. I know it is a pain to play around these but we will try to keep them isolated away from hole locations. They are temporary this spring and will help us recover much faster and get back to good greens sooner so we appreciate your understanding.
