Conditions update: Sunriver golf maintenance staff already has eyes on 2017
For a director of agronomy, there is no time too early to begin thinking about the next season. Of course, Sunriver Resort is still in its peak golf season, with near-perfect sunny Central Oregon weather sure to stretch for weeks to come.
But Sunriver Director of Agronomy Ryan Wulff and his staff are already preparing for the inevitable change of seasons, devising a plan that will get the turf on Sunriver Resort’s four golf courses through the winter in good health and into a fast start come spring.
On Wulff’s mind now?
- Getting the plant health in the rough areas, tee boxes, green surroundings, and high-traffic spots on each course in tip-top shape before winter hits.
- Firming up the tee boxes ahead of the 2017 PGA Professional Championship, which will be played next June at both Crosswater Club and the Meadows Course.
Both while keeping the courses in the world-class condition golfers expect at Sunriver through the heart of the golf season.
