Thank you for your kind donations for the golf staff that take care of our needs. I am sure their families will appreciate this gesture.
The game for this week will be the “Christmas Waltz” which is also called 1-2-3. 4 man teams net score. So, starting at hole No. 1 – one best score is recorded. Hole No.2 – the best 2 scores are recorded. Hole No.3 – the best 3 scores are recorded. This process then repeats itself around the course.
I will gladly accept your $50 peso contributions this week.
I asked Phil if he wanted us golfers to remove the broad leaf grass we find on some of the greens. This is Phil’s reply:
You can remove them, but if you do not get the roots it will continue. This is actually a form of bent grass and populates down here when the bermuda starts going dormat. Because of the cooler temps, the bermuda leaves ´´holes´´ in which this can come up in. This problem will not go away for another 2 to 3 years in our program of progression.
So, I leave it to you, if the broad leaf annoys you, then carefully remove them. The broad leaf grass is well rooted, so try not to make a mess of the green. Be aware, that the brown spot of soil that is left after the broad leaf is removed will probably take some time to fill in, so try not to disturb the area around the pin (2-3 yard radius). I am sure that Phil will be monitoring this, and if he feels that we are doing more damage than good, he will ask us to stop.
As always, thanks for taking care of the course by filling divots & repairing ball marks. See you Wednesday.
