The mild spring and early summer has given way to triple digit heat and severe thunderstorms. On July 1st,
a microburst thunderstorm hit CCC, knocking down 10-12 trees, numerous limbs and tree tops as well as
dumping nearly 2” of rain. Over the next two weeks the golf course maintenance staff and I cleaned up the
fallen trees, limbs and repaired washed out bunkers. On July 11th, we organized a volunteer “clean-up day”
on the golf course where members came out to help pick up sticks, pinecones and other debris. In all, we
had nearly 40 volunteers who picked up over 100 bags of d ebris. Thank to everyone’s hard work, the course
was pack in great shape in no time.
August is typically when we have our second greens aerification of the year. This year I have opted to forgo
this aerification. Unlike most years, our club tournament schedule has been altered because of the PGA
Championship at Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course. This has moved our scheduled aerification date to August
20th, only two weeks before Labor Day . Problems could arise getting the greens grown in and recovered
before cooler fall temperatures arrive. In anticipation of skipping this aerification, the greens were aerified
more aggressively in late May than in previous years. Although aerifying the greens only one time this year
is not ideal, there will be no long term affects to the greens from omitting one aerification. Instead, we will
be lightly verticutting and sand topdressing the greens as we have all summer. We should return to great
playing conditions by the weekend.
Thanks for everyone’s help and cooperation!
