Naturalized Areas/Secondary Rough

For the past two years Victoria National has been able to provide tournament volunteers with an educational seminar each day.  Today was our first seminar and we were fortunate to have Jerry Husemann from BASF come in and speak on Naturalized Areas and Secondary Rough.  Jerry described these areas as low maintenance (not zero maintenance). Having secondary rough on your course will reduced fuel costs, labor, water usages, and fertilizer.  A mixture of spring and fall pre emergence with a mixture of post emergence is the key to success. Lastly, Mr. Husemann spoke on weed species and herbicides to suppress them. BASF: "We don't make the turf, we make it better" Thanks again to Jerry and BASF for the support.

Let The Honey Flow

This past week we were able to build our new stands for our bee hives and had a chance to peek into the hives to check them out. All four of our boxes are doing great and are ready for the 2016 season. Here are a few action shots that were taken while we were examining the hives.
The white dot in the center of the picture is the queen of the hive.
