FROM DAVE WILLIAMS

What’s going on with 16 green and our fairways???

I remember thinking to myself back in late June how easy of a season this had been for growing grass. The mild temps and timely rains were ideal growing conditions for cool season turf. Then July, August and even September came and I ate those thoughts. As we all know July was pretty hot and dry, we finally did get some much needed rain in August, but it was a double edged sword. Because along with the rain came the humidity and even hotter temps. #16 green seemed to be doing OK, other than it wouldn’t dry ou ton the surface. Turns out the sod we took from old 12 green did not want to root into the soil below it that also came from #12 green. I’m still perplexed as to why it would not root; we poked holes in it a few times to penetrate any layers, but the benefits were short lived. Then we got the the 3″ of rain in August followed by temps in the 90’s and the roots cooked and the green declined rapidly. Since then we have replaced a lot of the damaged areas with new bentgrass sod, which should perform much better than the Poa annua sod. Our plan is to open the green after aerification next week.

As for the fairways, again, the hot humid conditions created the perfect environment for a disease called “gray leaf spot” to attack our perennial ryegrass fairways. This is the first time I have ever had to deal with this fungus and will certainly be prepared for it next season. At the Valentine Turf Research Complex on PSU campus, they actually have to use a greenhouse with misting and extreme heat to make this pathogen grow. Needless to say these are not typical conditions we experience in central PA, so I was never really concerned with applying treatments for gray leaf spot, as we have never had a problem of this kind. I was amazed at how fast and devastating it was! Within a day the turf that was infected had died. And just when I thought it was over, due to a short cool spell, it got hot and humid again and reactivated. We have since sprayed the fairways and have stopped the progression of this disease. Most of the damaged areas have already been reseeded and are starting to grow. During this healing process please keep golf carts off the infected areas, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your concern and understanding with the “less than par” conditions we are experiencing. I’m sorry these things have happened and can assure you I am more frustrated than you. I am confident these conditions will be short lived and things will be in good shape for fall golfing!

Sincerely,
Dave Williams CGCS

The golf season is in full swing so take advantage of the summer weather and enjoy the beautiful scenery and great golf at Mountain View CC!
IMMEDIATE ATTENTION****************************MEN’S MEMBER MEMBER THIS COMING WEEKEND JULY 9-10
We currently have 30 teams signed up for this event so if you would like to play please register in the Pro Shop. This is better ball of partners net only event.

ALSO…………..Men’s Senior Championship on July 23rd and 24th

Thank you to all the women who participated in the Women’s Member Member event! Winners were
1st Christy Miller and Judy Bechman 65
2nd Janine Andrews and Kathy Knechtel 68
3rd Bev Vender and Patty Brackbill 69

Also congrats to Jim Hunter and Stan Figart for recent holes in one! Both made holes in one on #16. To date this year we have had one hole in one on #2, one on #9, one on #10, and FIVE hole in ones on new #16! This is very interesting as the new hole has only been opened for 4 months.

Please see the Pro Shop if you would like to join the Hole in One Club. The club is $20 and allows you a half keg of domestic beer if you are lucky enough to make a hole in one. We start a new club when the funds are depleted. We need to have approximately 6 hole in ones before we start new club, currently the club is still good for another 3 holes in one.

Be sure to use your Pro Shop credit, as we have fine selection for all your golfing needs!

**************CHANGES TO MEN’S CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP***************

The golf committee has made significant changes to the club championship in order to encourage participation. The committee believes this will also add more excitement to the club championship. We hope you enjoy and participate in the new format. For the record the format is modeled after the US amateur championship.

In some instances if it does not work for you please try and uninstall the app and then reinstall the app.

######IMPORTANT NOTE ON CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFYING######
Upon our Course Superintendent Dave Williams’ recommendation, we are temporarily closing 12 green. It will remain closed until approximately Aug 7th to 14th.
This has effects on the club championship qualifying, as some have already played the new 12 green while those qualifying now will be playing old 12. We have decided that anyone who has qualified or will qualify, will be assigned a par on #12. Those of you who have already qualified may notice your score changed to reflect the automatic par on #12. This is a highly unusual circumstance and we have tried to make it as fair as possible. Thank you for your understanding!

Update———-
Many of you have asked me the process regarding the drop areas on #3 and #4. We have discussed this at the golf committee meetings. As of now we are using the drop areas for womens and junior tourneys only; however we are likely to adopt this policy as a standard local rule in 2015 for everyone all the time. We did not want to change this local rule in the middle of the year. Before the purists argue that this is against the rules, many of the world’s greatest golf courses use this policy for holes that are deemed very difficult for the average golfer to play because of long carries over water or valleys. One famous example is the 17th island hole at TPC. Where the drop area is much closer to the hole and the tour players use this drop area during the PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP. However if anyone has any feedback please express your thoughts to me or one of our golf committee members.

See you at the course!

FROM THE GROUNDS: A MESSAGE FROM DAVID WILLIAMS, CGCS
LONG HARD WINTER CAUSES SEVERE DAMAGE IN A MATTER OF HOURS!
Even if you experience short term memory loss, it is not easy to forget the winter we just lived through. Lots of snow and brutally cold temperatures that lasted for months…this type of winter usually ends up wreaking havoc on plant material in one way, shape or form. For us, it was obviously our greens that were injured. Truth be told, it was not snow mold that caused the damage because it was too cold even for snow mold to grow. In fact, the harm to the greens most likely happened in a matter of hours! The exact day or time this happened is hard to pinpoint, but my best guess would be during the very brief thaw we had in February or when the snow melted off in March. Going into the winter, plants (grass included) go through a process called “hardening off” to prepare against the effects of winter climate. As the season progresses and temperatures warm up, the plants want to “wake up” and start to grow. However, when this happens, plants have no defense against extreme low temperatures or excess moisture. When the excessive amount of snow we had this winter melted, the cells within the plants filled up with water–similar to a water balloon. The problem arose when there was a rapid drop in temperature from above freezing to below freezing after this saturation. The water within the cells froze, expanded and ruptured the cells, killing the plants. This phenomenon is called crown hydration and that is what has severely damaged the Poa annua on our greens.

So what do we do to get them back? Ideally we should close the greens to play, raise the mowing height and re-seed them. This however is not an option we can choose. So we have aerified, seeded, fertilized, raised the mowing height a little bit, sprayed a dark colored dye and applied black sand to the damaged areas in essence raising the canopy temperature (this has been a cool spring) to try and get the seed to grow and survive. Thus far our efforts are paying off rather slowly. I’m hoping for warmer temperatures to aid in increased growth of the new seedlings. If all else fails, we may end up having to sod some of the larger effected areas.

In the mean time I certainly appreciate your patience and understanding with the “sub-par” condition of our greens. And believe me; I am much more frustrated than you are. In fact, if you don’t see me around for a while I may have checked into The Meadows. The one thing I can say is that each day they are getting a little better, it’s just painstakingly slow. The turf professionals that I seek advice from all say to be patient, they will get better. Sometimes though I feel like I do not have time to be patient!

David Williams, CGCS

The Men’s Invitational is fast approaching–August 2nd, 3rd and 4th!
This tournament was once a premier golf event in Central PA with over 100 teams competing. Last year, there were only 38 teams. We need the members participation to build this event back up to the premier status it once had. I am reaching out to past participants that I have contacted in an effort to make this a great event, but we really need club support! We have made some changes to the tournament, most notably, reducing the cost from $420 per team to only $300 per team! Please pick up your invitation in the Pro Shop!See you at the course!

Update on the Front 9 Renovation:  There have been many questions regarding the completion date of the changes to the Front 9.  Very simply, an approximate date of October 1st is anticipated.  Possibly earlier if all goes well, but highly unlikely anytime before September 1st.

Questions on OB stakes on #3.  OB stakes have been moved in on #3 approximately 5 yards near the cart path on the tee side of the pond.  This was done in anticipation of wetland runoff from adjoining property on our drainage ditch and the many rules scenarios that this could cause.  Let me assure you this was not done to narrow the course, trick up the course, penalize long hitters, surprise long hitters or any other obscure motive.  It was simply done in anticipation of avoiding the many problems that unseen casual water can cause.

Thank you very much to all the members who supported the Callaway Demo Day!  It was very much appreciated!
