Mowing The Fescue

Another one of the off-season tasks we work on is mowing of the course's naturalized areas.  With 40 acres to cut down on some tough terrain, this takes a couple of weeks to finish.

Typically we would complete this job in December.  However, with 15 days of measurable precipitation last month, conditions were too soft to be riding through these areas.  While there's still plenty of moisture in the ground now, cooler temperatures have helped to firm things up for us.

The tractor and deck mower proceed cautiously through the narrow strip of Fescue on the left side of #13.
