Mercury rising

I wish I was talking about the Bruce Willis movie, but instead the temperatures. We had one of our hottest weekends this year topping out at 99.8 on Saturday and 101.50 on Sunday. The weekend crew did a great job with watering and the course held up well.

You may notice a handful of wet spots close to the drains throughout the course and you may wonder why that is when it is so hot. When it gets that hot, particularly on a weekend when it is half crew for four hours, we'll over compensate with the nightly irrigation. Really not worth taking the chance of massive turf dessication.
