It’s hard to believe I’m going on my sixth season here at Lake Monterey Golf Course.
A lot has changed in the Pro Shop and on the golf course. This winter we will be doing some painting on the Club House walls. On the course we have been over-seeding many fairways with a low mow bluegrass seed and all the approaches on the front nine. Bent grass seed was put down on all front tees. The staff got all the tees, approaches and collars around the greens aerated this fall and they will be done again in the spring. This will make a better soil profile for the turf to grow better from all the wear it gets throughout the season. Once again, the greens were all aerated along with the practice putter. The practice putter got new irrigation installed around it, because the old pipe went under the green and was broken in a few places. As all this was being done, we also got the club house irrigation hook up to the golf course irrigation. That system has not run well since it was installed with the new club house. We are looking forward to having a great lawn around the club house this coming season.
We are also putting a new deck on the main bridge to the club house. If you are interested in helping, we are looking for volunteers to help with this project. Please call Lake Monterey Golf Course at (616) 896-8118 for more information on how you can help.
