Course Update - July 24, 2019
This is a follow up to bring everyone up to date on the progress being made on the greens. As many of you know, Granite Hills was faced with the unenviable task of dealing with snow mold on the greens this spring. This is our first encounter with snow mold since Granite Hills opened in 2007.
Our Greens Superintendent, Jeremy, has consulted with countless other superintendents who have had previous experience with these conditions and the challenges they present. He is following the recommendations and suggestions of these fellow turf care professionals to determine the best method possible to remedy the situation. To this point in the recovery and considering the less than ideal growing conditions we experienced in May and early June, significant and constant progress is being made.
Given our conditions to date, we are relieved that there have not been any temporary greens this season and no greens were void of green grass. None of the greens were totally affected. We are very optimistic that with the recent rains and warmer temperatures, we are expecting even better growing conditions in the next 7-10 days. With the fairways and tee boxes in their usual prime condition, we are committed to returning Granite Hills Golf Course to the outstanding conditions that our members and golfers have come to expect.
Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support during what has been a very difficult time for the entire Granite Hills family.
