Turfgrass Growth Regulation
My apologies for not having a new post in a while. It is not because we have nothing to share, just that we have been very busy, both on the golf course and off. Hope to catch everyone up on the happenings at Harrison Bay in the next few days.
We have used growth regulators on the greens and fairways for several years and this year with the amount of play our golf course has been receiving it is difficult to get back out and blow the clippings left by the rough mowers in a timely manner. We have received several complaints about the noise the tractors and blowers make on the golf course and I am sorry but it has been a necessary evil. We started today to apply Legacy to our roughs as a manner of reducing the clipping yield in that area of the golf course. It is our hope that the use of Legacy in the roughs will eliminate the need to send blowers out to clean up the clippings left by the rough mowers. It should also produce a tighter, healthier turfgrass plant in the rough so your ball will set up better and you will be able to enjoy your round more.
