NEWSLETTER JUNE 2013

Dear Members,

The weather has been hot during this past month but the weather is not the only thing hot.  Our Danang players were hot during the Ryder Cup competition!  The team from Hanoi came here ready for  competition but our Danang Team was victorious against in this 3rd annual Ryder Cup.  The Ryder Cup has become a very popular and exciting event for both players and spectators from both regions.

The Jaspas Pairs competition sponsored by SieMatic was also a highlight of the May calendar.  Two-man teams from all over the country came into Danang to play in the two-day tournament.  The first day was played next door at Montgomerie Links and the final day was held here at DGC and it was a couple days of great fun. Lots of liquid was consumed and lots of strokes were played and in the end, Mr. La Van Truong Son and Mr. Nguyen Thanh Binh were the overall winners (Best Nett).  Congratulations!

On June 4th and 5th, we have performed our renovations on the greens and tees.  We understand that this is an inconvenience and that there is a period of time when the golf course conditions won't be ideal but it is, however, a necessary procedure to keep the excellent conditions year round that you have become accustomed to.  Even though the greens will not be as fast and smooth as normal, the golf course will still be very playable following the procedure and will recover to normal conditions very soon.  The Superintendent's section of the newsletter will explain more in depth about the renovation procedure and the purpose.


Sincerely,
JOE MILLAR

From the superintendent

Greetings members!

This month, the course is undergoing a very important renovation on greens, tees and green surrounds. These are beneficial and a "must do" if we want to keep the quality and the plant healthy during these hot weeks. Overtime with bermuda a thatch layer builds up consisting of dead organic material, this must be removed multiple times during the growing season or else disease takes over, water and fertiliser is trapped and is not available to the plant. With the sand here at DGC it compacts very easliy so coring helps soften the surface which allows for water and fertiliser to enter more easliy and create a better surface for the golfers.

For two days I will concentrate on scarifying all surfaces, removing the dead material then following over with the Procore machine taking plugs out to help relieve compaction. I will roll the greens until im happy with the ball roll as both these procedures tend to disrupt the smoothness of the greens. After rolling a heavy topdress of sand will be rubbed in to replace the dead material taken. Using brooms and mats the sand will be pushed into the surface and open holes. Fertiliser and amendments will be applied to help recovery and push the growth. For a few days after this there will be some sand still visible on the greens surface which might affect the ball roll but a follow up rub in and roll of the greens will have them back to 100% in no time.

It is a very simple procedure that the course needs to undertake and will aid in keeping the high standard we have here at DGC. I thank you for understanding and patience and will have the greens rolling fast in no time. If you see me out on course feel free to ask any questions, im happy to help.

Happy golfing and see you out there!

RULE OF THE MONTH

Rule #19-3 Ball in motion deflected or stopped by an opponent, caddie, or equipment.

If a player's ball is accidentally stopped or deflected by an opponent, his caddie, or his equipment, there is no penalty. The player may cancel the stroke and play another stroke from as near as possible to the original stroke without penalty or the player may elect to play the ball as it lies.

The exception to this rule is if the ball strikes the person attending the flagstick or anything held by him. This would result in a two stroke penalty.

Also, if an opponent or fellow competitor or his caddie purposely deflects or stops a ball in motion(Rule 1-2), they incur a two stroke penalty. And in seriou1s cases, the tournament committee may impose a penalty of disqualification.

Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions you may have about the rules of golf. Knowing the rules can often benefit you on the golf course.

Good Luck and Good Golf!

Thanks,
Joe Millar, PGA
