Last week SW Florida.  This week San Jose.  Still great being out of the Chicago cold! A lot of cultural practices this winter at The Villages in San Jose, CA.  Aerified and topdressed fairways!  Aerifying and seeding high traffic and thin areas. Labor and hiring have been difficult in most markets.  It has been exceptionally difficult in the California Bay Area.  I have not been more impressed at this golf course and it starts with building the best team we have ever had at this property.  What a great staff in place.  Thank you to Mark (Superintendent ..read more

One more success at Myakka Pines.  Overseeding did not exist at this property.  With the support of The Club, we overseeded tees and the driving range tee this year.  While we were not able to drop seed until the first week of December, the overseed was quite a success.  Love it!     The post Overseed Success appeared first on Golf Maintenance Solutions ..read more

We know the negative perce ..read more
