Good Morning Kingsmill,

Today’s forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies with a high of 75 degrees.

Our Club Championship Week continues today on the River Course for our KLGA 9. Good Luck to everyone that is participating.

The River / Plantation Practice Range will be closed today from 12:00 – 3:00 PM for weekly maintenance.

Q: We have had PLENTY OF RAIN so why is the rough brown in many areas? A: The rough is slow to green up after we lowered the height of cut to 1.75″ last week. This is due to the cooler temperatures that have slowed the growth rate of the bermudagrass. It will green back up. We made this temporary sacrifice in aesthetics to improve playability.

Have a wonderful day.

Good Morning Kingsmill,

Today is officially the first day of Fall and it sure feels like it this morning with temperatures dipping into the 40’s. This afternoon will be beautiful with sunny skies and a high of 71 degrees.

We completed irrigation repairs on River #11 yesterday and we are working on Plantation #16 today.

The rough is slow to green up after we lowered the height of cut last week. This is due to the cooler temperatures that have slowed the growth rate of the bermudagrass. We will green back up. We made this temporary sacrifice in aesthetics to improve playability.

Have a wonderful day.

Today will be Sunny, with a high near 68 degrees. We sure hope that you are enjoying this weather and the change of seasons.

The golf courses have had a little more time to dry and we will be able to allow carts off the paths following the 90 degree rule today. Please be cautious as there are still some wetter areas.

The week ahead looks dry and we will begin mowing property lines again on Monday.

Have a wonderful day.

Good Morning Kingsmill,

The Golf Course Maintenance Team put a tremendous effort into bunker repairs yesterday. 80 man hours went into pumping out water, removing silt and raking. The Team was here from sun up to sun down. All bunkers at the Woods were pumped and repaired leaving just #8-18 to rake this morning. On the River holes #1-11 were completed leaving just seven holes to complete before moving over to Plantation for some more fun! We hope you have a great round today. Please remember that the golf courses are still very wet.

Have a great day.

Friday – September 18, 2020

Good Morning Kingsmill,

The rain is moving out earlier than expected. We received just over 3.0″ of rain with the system. Bunkers are washed out – meaning the sand is moved from the face of the bunker to the center of the bunker. Often mixed with silt and covering the drainage. This happens during very heavy rains. We have begun pumping out water, removing silt, and moving sand back onto the bunker faces. This process will take 2-3 days to complete on all three courses.

Have a great day.

Thursday – September 17, 2020

Good Morning Kingsmill,

Rain is likely today, mainly after 11:00 AM. The remnants of Hurricane Sally are heading our way with 3-6″ of rain forecasted for most of the area. We are out in full force this morning mowing as much as possible before the rain begins. The primary rough on all 54 holes has been mowed this week and many holes are being cut again. Lowering the height of cut on primary rough to 1.75″ is 100% for playability. As expected this came with some scalping that will green back up quickly.

Grab your raincoat and we will see you out there!

Good Morning Kingsmill,

Another cool morning, sunny skies, and an afternoon high of 76 degrees. That sounds like a beautiful day!

We are working hard to mow and cleanup as much rough as possible ahead of the rains that are forecasted for the end of the week. We definitely do not need the additional 3 to 5″ of rain that are currently forecasted. The remnants of Hurricane Sally are set to arrive Thursday afternoon. We are really hoping for the rain to stay south of Williamsburg!

Enjoy this beautiful day.
