The golf season has started and with the exception of a few minor areas of ice damage, the course has come thru the winter well. An area of concern is the continuing effect of the late 2003 drought conditions. The Bemidji area was very dry going into the winter months, even though we received a significant amount of snow this winter, the moisture content was low which in effect did little to alleviate the low soil moisture levels. We have observed stress conditions on the turf and also on a number of trees throughout the course. Hopefully, things have a way of balancing themselves, we will receive some timely spring rains to help us out.
To add to our troubles, upon firing up the irrigation system this spring we have developed a severe vibration problem in the pump forcing us to replace the pump and pump motor. I am currently working with the well driller to replace these components as soon as possible to get our system going.
In the mean time we are doing our best to keep the greens and tees watered during this set back, but we might have to put up with some dry conditions until we get this problem resolved.
