During the most recent heat wave, we were unable to deal with the weeds for several reasons. First, selective herbicides tend to lose their selectivity when applied during periods of high heat or when the turf is under stress. It is safe to say that our turf has definitely been under some stress lately! Secondly, the labor it takes to physically pull weeds was being directed at other projects, many dedicated to hoses just to keep our turf alive.
As we slowly transition from summer to fall, we will be out re-seeding many areas affected by the summer of 2010, and in some cases even laying new sod. Please continue to be patient and respect any "traffic directing" items such as ropes and/ or arrows. Soon we will be able to again enjoy the beauty that is Champaign Country Club!
