|Looking back down #12 from the green.|
When it comes to giving the turf a break, cool nights are equally as valuable to us as cool days. Any August morning when we need to throw on a light jacket is welcomed, and we were happy to have a few of them this week.
Some folks have already forgotten the six heat waves we experienced before August, and are referring to this as an "easy" year. While this may end up being just an "average" year when the books are closed on it, it has had its share of challenges, including way too much rain for many local courses.
The forecast looks like we will have good weather for aerification this week. Less stress going into this process will hasten recovery and get us set up for some great conditions this fall.
