The fall season is always a very busy time for the maintenance staff. It is a time when our mowing schedule slows down and we can concentrate on accomplishing a multitude of projects. Recently we have been installing subsurface drainage lines to aid in drying up areas that are negatively affected by too much moisture. Leaf removal is a huge undertaking on the course, common areas and within the condominium units. We also have to prepare the golf course for the winter which includes aerifying, topdressing and pesticide applications to protect our turf from winter fungal diseases.
