Good Morning Kingsmill,

Today’s forecast calls for cloudy skies. High temperature of 83 degrees. Our Team will be preparing the River and Woods Courses for play.

We are DryJecting the Plantation Course greens today. We began the process yesterday with a 0.160″ core aerification. During today’s DryJect process we will apply 10 tons of sand per acre into 4″ deep holes on a 3″ x 3″ spacing. This process helps to dilute organic matter which will ultimately contribute to firmer putting surfaces. Our long term Agronomic Plan includes DryJecting greens annually. The Plantation Course will benefit the most from DryJecting. The 35 year old greens mix on the Plantation Course has a very high organic matter content. These high organic matter levels restrict drainage. Moisture Management is key to maintaining quality cool season putting greens in the Transition Zone. An afternoon thunderstorm in July is our greatest challenge on greens with restricted drainage. High moisture levels plus high heat equal rapid decline for cool season turf.

Q: Why do we DryJect?

A: To dilute organic matter and improve drainage.

Thank You for your continued support and understanding as we complete fall greens aerification.

Have a great day!
