3-17-18 March Mowing Madness

We are mowing today.  Kind of crazy considering the weather forecast.Weather 318

As you can see the forecast high for today is 40°.  Right now it is a brisk 25°.  Since there is no frost, grass is dry, ground is firm we are mowing greens, collars, approaches and getting the preliminary work on bunkers started.

The goal for bunker work today is to clear any drainage donuts, push sand up to the edges where it may have washed down over winter, and use the scairifier board to get the first fluff on the sand.  dscf4561.jpgIt is too early to get the bunkers perfect considering the forecast is for freezing rain overnight and 1/4″ of rain on Tuesday and 1-3″ of snow on Wednesday.  So getting them started and protected is good, fully perfect…silly.

We are also testing the stump grinder I just purchased last week.  We had to replace a clutch and a couple of bushings but we are ready for testing.
