COursE rEpOrT can be tricky because we still have quite a bit of cool- season Ryegrass hanging around. Behind the scenes this month, we'll begin looking at the calendar and counting down the days until we can start the process of aerifying the courses to prepare for the transition beginning in late June. This preparation can be done several differ- ent ways; we usually begin by pulling out plugs from the turf grass, which ultimately helps with the transition. During June and July we will be focusing on these efforts, which ultimately prepare the Players and Celebrity courses for our annual fall overseeding. Currently, the layouts are in great shape as we begin this transition process, and if you've been out to play lately you've probably seen the blooms on some plants and trees such as the Jacarandas with their beautiful purple flowers. There also are bushes such as Leucophyllum frutescens (Texas Rangers) and Caesalpinia pulcherrima (Mexican Bird of Paradise) that are showing flowers. Certain areas of wild flow- ers have bloomed as well and as a result we will be thrashing them down to allow summer plants to grow in. This also is the time of year that we begin trimming bushes in the landscape areas, which helps with maintenance and sustainability. From the golf operations side during May, the property is always welcoming for golfers to come play and take advantage of the great weather and turf conditions. Our part-time guests to the Valley head home soon, and there are still opportunities to get out and enjoy some great golf. Hope to see you out on the course!
