Winter Watering

Believe it or not watering still takes place to multiple areas on the golf course year round. Even with all of the snow we receive there are many areas that have southern exposures or are windblown that require additional water to be applied. Other areas that are problematic are tees that have tree drip lines that encroach into the tee surface. These tree roots compete with the grass for water and rapidly remove it from the soil. These areas are hit with either water tankers or plugging directly into the frost free portion of the irrigation system.
