September 12

Lots of interesting stuff happening today.  Miguel and Vicente are cleaning up a fallen tree limb.

The fairway expansion on 18, that Keith has been cutting down in gradual increments, is beginning to play firm.

Kieth has been expanding the fairways on 2, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15 and 18. This will make the golf course much more enjoyable and playable for the mid to high handicap player.

Noa is leveling heads on the edges of greens for better coverage - this should help us to cut down on hand watering

Bernardo continues to replace defective solenoids and valves on our Hunter Sprinklers. Notice that the soil in this repair has sand in it, a good indication that this sprinkler has been worked on before - irrigation techs will often back fill a repair with sand when the soil is wet.  

Hunter Sprinklers require constant repair.
Peter and I took advantage of the dry conditions to trace drain lines. Here Peter has located a riser. We ran a fish tape down the pipe and wire tracked it. 

We then moved the fish tape to the next riser down the line and tracked the wire through an area that was extremely wet back in July when we had the big rains.

This is me tracking drain line with the wand and marking paint. 

We will dig down and place a surface risers on top of the pipe - this will save us from having to spray this fairway for Pythium Blight the next time we have another hot wet July/August.
