In summary, we have had a little over 3” of rain during the time which is a blessing and a curse.
Scottsdale private golf courses had a great deal of repair work to do as the washes were running as fast as I have seen in a long time, but this complimentary water is always welcome. This has contributed to the Bermuda grass growing to the extent we had to increase our mowing schedule to keep it closely mown at a height that is appropriately playable on Scottsdale private golf courses.
The greens at Scottsdale golf club are the best they have been at this time of years and will only get stronger and healthier in the next few months. We will not be overseeding the Scottsdale golf club greens again this fall and expect they will be very good as we move through the fall and winter months.
As some have seen we expanded the 1st and 17th Scottsdale golf club greens to their original specs as designed by Tom Lehman in 2002. What appears to be a 419 Bermuda grass collar is actually the same green putting green turf, Tif Eagle, as the other greens on the Scottsdale private golf courses
They are to be played as your ball is on the putting surface and can be marked, cleaned and replaced.
Next summer we anticipate enlarging the balance of the Scottsdale golf club greens to their original design specs as this will give us more hole locations on each green.
Monsoons also have high winds which break many branches off all types of trees and in some cases uproot them or break them in half on Scottsdale private golf courses.
