We did receive some winter kill caused by the utter lack of adequate moisture this winter coupled with the golf course being extremely busy with play. There are a number of areas around the course that look like the picture above taken from #18 fairway. I've seen worse winter damage, but I've certainly seen much better. We will be seeding these areas as soon as is appropriate, but I'm not sure how successful we will be without water. These areas will eventually fill in, but they will take some time. It's still very early and the turf is just starting to wake up. We haven't had a lot of consistent weather that would be conducive to growth.
Staffing has been difficult to come by. We are currently maintaining the course with myself, my equipment tech and 2 seasonal employees. Not many people read this blog, but if you are and you know anyone looking for work please have them go to this link to apply. https://cityofdelta.net/hr/page/golf-course-maintenance-worker
