Golf Course News

As we are in the midst of some great golfing weather, there is no better time than the present to realize the exciting changes for Spring on the course and grounds at Wildwood Golf Club.  Members and guests will be delighted to see renovations to the front entry which include a complete re-facing of the steps in addition to a soon to be colorful perennial flower display which will provide blooms all season long.  Along the valet and bag drop area, Evergreen and PJM  Rhododendrons will provide spring color and dimension, while coral bells, candytuft, and Veronica Georgia Blue plants will provide groundcover and beautiful early season flowers from February to April.  Venturing onto the course, golfers will notice a split faced block half wall framing #1 tee, completing the design flow seen elsewhere throughout the Clubhouse Campus.  On the course, landscape improvements include the redesign of the bed at #2 Ladies Tee, #4 tee, #11 green and Sample Road, and #17 tee.  Golfers will notice a multi season blooming effect in these beds, with daffodils and other bulbs flowering in early spring, followed by colorful displays of phlox and coreopsis, prior to the profusion of annual blooms in the summer months.  
Spring aerification was successfully completed on Wednesday March 30.  The Wildwood Golf Club staff removed ½” cores from the greens and approaches totaling to about 50 holes per square foot, or 7.5 million throughout the greens and approaches.  Following cleanup of the cores, the crew expertly backfilled each of the remaining holes with fine silica sand, specified to optimize root growth and playing conditions.  In total, over 100 tons of sand was incorporated into the greens, a large but appropriate amount as we lay the foundation for a successful golf season.  Biannual aerficiation is important as it helps to dilute organic matter that accumulates within the soil profile.  When left unchecked, this organic matter contributes to poor turf health and playability.  
Proper divot repair etiquette calls on players to repair fairway and tee divots by placing the stripped turf “green side up”, permitting the turf to root and reestablish into the fairway.  At times when the turf breaks up mid-air after the shot, players are encouraged to utilize the divot mix provided in the golf carts.  Simply pour the mix into the divot, applying enough to slightly overfill it.  With the sole of your shoe, smooth the mound of mix to the surrounding elevation.   Taking a few seconds to repair your fairway and tee divots will permit our greens and grounds staff to dedicate labor to more value added tasks throughout the Club.
