Greens Breath "Big" Sigh of Relief
Sept. 5, 2014 - On Sept. 2 and 3, all greens were aerated and topdressed — an essential cultivation practice that relieves compaction, reduces thatch build up, amends the soil profile, and prepares a seed bed.
The process involves over 240 man-hours, 125 pounds of putting green seed, 500 pounds of fertilizer 36 tons of sand, which counters the compaction and stress placed on the greens by some 250 mowing's, 100 rolls, thousands of rounds of golf and millions of gallon of irrigation water.
The process is also very labor intensive with the majority of man-hours spent pushing and shoveling "plugs" that are generated by the aeration equipment.

Ken and Brian Michaud Win 62nd Annual Tobin Memorial Member-Guest
Aug. 17 - The father and son team of Ken and Brian Michaud proved to be unstoppable in their three championship flight matches, sealing the deal on the 15th hole on Sunday against the formidable duo of Jeff Durkin and Jack Bandera, and winning the 62nd Annual Gov. Maurice J. Tobin Memorial Member-Guest.
Ken and Brian Michaud celebrate their win on the 18th green with the Tobin Memorial trophy.
Ken and Brian had it going throughout the tournament, with Brian crushing drives and Ken carving irons into holes. Both men made putts from everywhere in all three matches.
Jeff and Jack — both accomplished players — played extremely well but were unable to overcome the relentless barrage from the Michauds.
It's noteworthy to mention that Ken is a two-time Tobin champ, winning the tournament in 2004 with his brother Bruce.
