News from The Big A!

What a week!

The Pinehurst Greens were sprigged a little over 3 weeks ago. We are off to a good start growing them in.

The heights have been reduced to .180” and the weekly topdressing and fertilizer programs are on schedule.

The .8” of rain we got on Friday morning will help the greens and the golf course.

Have a great weekend!

News from The Big A!

We would like to thank all our members for a Great summer at The Big A!

Congratulations to our own Morgan Akenbrandt & Brock Weaver.

The Southern Texas PGA Championships were held this week at the Woodlands CC Palmer course.

Morgan Placed 3rd in the girls 13-14 division & Brock 1st place in the boys 9-10 division.

 

The improvements on the course continue and you may have noticed the renovation of hole 5 on Point, construction is almost complete.

Pinehurst Greens are coming in nicely. Looking forward to having 27 holes open this fall.

New driving range balls will be here next week!

 

We get lots of calls for donation of rounds for golf certificates, and would like to help.

Course Update

The Summer Heat continues!

This week we cut the Pinehurst greens for the first time since greens were installed. We started the height of cut at .220.

Next week, we will be topdressing them for the first time.

They are not quite two weeks old and they are looking great.

Over the next 6 weeks, we will be pushing them with fertilizer and lowering the heights.

Course Update

Fantastic weather this week!

The crew has been busy working on the Pinehurst greens.  The greens were sprigged on Monday. We spent the remainder of the week keeping the sprigs wet.

We are starting to see some of the sprigs tack down and green up.  Next week, we will be topdressing them and edging the perimeters to keep the collars from growing into the green.  We will also be applying fertilizer to push them along.

Enjoy the great weather this weekend!

Course Update

Hot Hot weather!!!

The maintenance team will be sprigging the greens on Pinehurst Monday.

The sprigs will arrive on a refrigerated truck first thing in the morning. We will spread the sprigs and cut them in on that morning.

The greens will be ready for play mid to late September.

The greens on shores are starting to show some signs of summer stress.

On July 29th, we will be closing the shores for a day to aerify the greens. We will be using a 3/8” tine and removing the material.

After aerification, we will topdress and fertilize them.

Thanks for playing The Big A !!!

A heavy lifting week for the maintenance team. We pulled the fumigation tarps off the greens on Pinehurst.  After the greens aired out for a few days, we sodded the collars.  The Tifeagle sprigs will arrive on Monday morning, and we will have all the greens sprigged by the end of the day.

We will keep the water on the sprigs and begin pushing them with fertilizer.

Course Update

We have had a great week at Atascocita Golf Club. The Point greens are now open and the construction has begun on Pinehurst.

On Monday we stripped the surface off of the greens.  We then tilled the soil and applied a soil fumigant.  The greens will remain covered for 10 days to allow the gas to fumigate the soil.  After the covers come off we will sod the collars and sprig the greens.  The greens will likely be ready for play in early September.

With all of the rain and construction work we have fallen behind on the rough.  Next week, we will try to get caught back up.

Red Friday

To support our troops, we wear red every Friday.

Here’s what’s happening at Atascocita Golf Club!

 

Course Update

We will begin construction on the Pinehurst greens Monday June 24th.  We will start by sod cutting and removing the existing surface.  Then, we will till in a soil amendment called Renovate Plus. Renovate Plus is a powerful amendment that will open tight soils, speed turf recovery, and stimulate soil biology without a big nitrogen push. This combination allows for oxygen movement through the soil and promotes an active microbial generated nitrogen cycle.

After the greens are tilled we will grade the surface.  The next step will be applying Basamid and covering for 10 days.  Basamid is currently the only granular soil fumigant on the market. The product is activated when moist soil converts the granular material to a gaseous compound which disperses through the soil.  Soil-fumigants are often used on putting greens to eliminate weed seeds, soil-borne diseases, and nematodes.  After ten days we will pull the covers from the greens.

The next step will be to sod the collars.  After the collars have been sodded, we will sprig the greens.  We are aiming for opening them up sometime in September.

Red Friday

To support our troops, we wear red every Friday.

The BRAND NEW point greens are ready for play!

We are excited to announce that the point course is open!  The greens were sprigged on Thursday, May 2nd.  It has now been seven weeks and they are ready for play.  Over the past seven weeks the greens have been on an aggressive fertilizer program to push growth.  There are still a few areas that need to finish growing in but overall the greens are in fantastic condition.  The green speeds will increase over time as we continue to introduce growth regulators to the turf and the leaf blades tighten up.  We look forward to seeing you at the BIG A!
