Wednesday, October 9th and Thursday, October 10th.

A note from your new Superintendent:

I hope this note finds you all well. My name is Doug Hall and I’ll be your superintendent at Bon Air. My family and I are excited to be here, and I look forward to getting around to meeting all of you.

As my first order of business, I am setting up an aeration and overseeding of your perennial ryegrass fairways. This process of pulling a core (aeration) and slice seeding seed into the fairways (overseeding) is an important agronomic process that will continue to regenerate new growth into your fairways. Perennial ryegrass is a bunch type grass and will not spread, or creep into the voided areas, therefore it is important that we continually introduce new seed into the fairways each year. For this reason, I along with the support of the board would like to close the course on the 9th and 10th of October so we can get the seed in the ground as soon as possible. We have already lost some valuable growing time and would like to move quickly to take advantage of the time we have left in this growing season. After seeding a fertilizer will be applied and we will keep the seed moist until germination, which with ryegrass is only a few days. In addition to planting seed, aerations are crucial to the success of a golf course. Aerations promote new root growth, relieves compaction, vents built up gasses in the soil, creates avenues and pathways for water to drain through the rootzone, allows for better oxygen and nutrient exchange, helps to level playing surfaces, and creates a better environment for turf to grow.

As mentioned earlier, I am excited to get on property and get into the business of making Bon Air the great golf course I know it can be. My first official day will be October 14th; however, I live close by and will be visiting the property periodically until I officially start.

I would like to thank everyone in advance for your patience while we complete this most important agronomic process.

Sincerely,

Douglas Hall
