|Interns Applying Sand|
Our two turfgrass student interns made the applications using small push spreaders calibrated for the right amount. We followed that with a quick two-minute irrigation cycle to help move the sand down into the turf canopy and then the green was ready for play.

The process becomes more challenging and time consuming during the summer months when the bermudagrass grows more vigorously. We even apply growth regulating compounds to the bunker faces in efforts to assist with the challenge of this task.
As I wrap up this edition I wanted to share with you a few things I found on Twitter shortly after the PGA qualifying tournaments. It seems we are well thought of and a few individuals decided to share their thoughts with the rest of the digital world. Now I am not a Twitter follower but I believe each of these tweets are good things.
Played Charlotte qualifier today at Carolina GC, an old Donald Ross course. Nice to walk off greens straight onto next tee, rare these days!

Carolina Golf club has hands down the best Bermuda fairways I have ever played out of. No competition. Courses could take a lesson.
