A lot of work occurs between the hours of 5-6 a.m., when nobody is around in preparation for guests arriving. Every- thing must be ready to go! On the Celebrity Course, there are plenty of new annual flowers in bloom as well as the wildflowers, dominated by the African daisies. Everywhere you look, it is colorful and spectacular, and looming in the background are amazing mountain views. Newly added mulch on both courses enhance the landscape areas, allowing the trees, bushes and flowers to stand out and look fantastic. Meanwhile, March is the time of year that the Bermuda grass begins to wake up and start growing. This is apparent on the Players course because we do not overseed the rough, and every day that goes by you will begin to notice new growth. During this time, we will be adjusting the mower heights weekly and spending a lot of time moni- toring conditions. We do this in order to have the best pos- sible transition from winter ryegrass to our summer Bermuda grass. Warmer temperatures, longer days, and busy golf courses will also challenge our ability to water the courses, but most of the time it is not a problem. If you do see a sprinkler running at an odd time, rest assured we are probably just trying to catch up on an area that needs a little bit more H2O. It is a pleasure to host everyone and we hope you have a great time playing and visiting the Indian Wells Golf Resort.
