|11 green basking in the sun|
The greens, tees, and fairways were fertilized this week. The greens were also spiked and rolled. Other tasks completed this week included: mowing all turf areas, changing hole locations, bunker preparation, bunker edge trimming, tee divot filling, equipment servicing and repair, brush clearing, hand aeration of wet spots, hand watering, and golf cart repairs.
I am continuing to receive numerous compliments on the condition of the golf course. Come play a round and check it out for yourself. There is a great labor day special going on right now. If you don't have a tee time yet, get one quick, they are going fast. I copied the following from the Sandpines Facebook page:

|Jerry mowing with the rotary cutter|
Jerry has been making quick work of the brush and tall grass in the areas outside the primary rough. Last year was our first year using the rotary cutter on these areas, and some of the areas were really overgrown. With only a years worth of growth, the amount of brush to mow down this year is substantially less than last year.
