Hole In One - First Of 2009

Paul Lewis scored the first hole in one at Oceana in the 2009 season. He made his ace on hole #8 using a 7 iron. The yardage for Paul was 147 yards on April 16, 2009. Congratulations Paul!!!


Aerification Under Way

Well the cores are extracted and next the topdressing sand will be applied and fertilizer down to help in a speedy recovery. A nice thunderstorm along with some warm weather wouldn't hurt a bit either. The forecast is for rain on Tuesday April 14th, and starting Wednesday the 15th some much warmer weather up near and into the 60's. Soon the grass will be growing filling in any signs Old Man Winter may have left behind, and get the buds to pop out on all the beautiful trees lining the fairways of Oceana Golf Club. Let the leagues begin, handicaps drop, and the course record be in jeopardy. Good Luck and Good Golfing in 2009.

Green Aeriation

Hello Golfers,
This Spring weather has set the maintenance of the course back a little. One of the necessary evils of the business is the need to Aerate the greens and for that matter as much of the golf course as possible. We try to get the greens done A.S.A.P. and that has not happened yet. One of the key parts to getting it started is ground temperature. The soil must be 47-50 degrees for the plant to not suffer too much shock. We are hoping to be near that soon. The process will take about two days with nine holes being closed each day. That will give the crew time to plug and clean the greens. Then the topdressing will be laid down along with fertilizer for the plant to help in recovery. Approximately one week later a second layer of topdressing sand will be applied to fill in any remaining holes and to top off the first application of topdressing.
