Throughout the golf course there are many areas that are off color (brown) by design. These brown areas are occurring as we continue to fine tune the adjustment of the new irrigation system. It is my goal to provide the driest conditions possible, while still providing enough moisture to keep the plant alive and viable.
As hot spots develop it tells me we are going in the right direction with controlling the amount of water applied to the critical play areas. These critical areas are greens, approaches and fairways.

When the hot spots show up we will hand water them only, so that we are  more specific with the water applied creating a more uniform playing surface.
