NEWSLETTER APRIL 2015

Dear Golfers,

The month of April got off to a great start with our 2015 Club Championship!  The event saw a full field of 144 players have a fantastic time over two days of play.  There were wonderful prizes thanks to all of our generous sponsors though unfortunately no one was able to make a hole-in-one and drive away with a new Mercedes Benz automobile, Ducati motorcycle, or EZGO buggy.  There were however many other exciting prizes won and a lot of great golf shots played.  The important thing is that a fun weekend was had by all and we thank all of the participants for being a part of our special event!  Once all the score cards were tallied, we found ourselves with a new Club Champion, Mr. Le Thanh Ha, who shot a two day total of 161 to win the tournament by one stroke.  Our Ladies Club Champion successfully defended her title from a year ago, winning the event for the second time, Mrs. Trai Holden.  Congratulations to our Champions as well as the winners and runner-ups from the handicap divisions that are linked here.  We hope to see you all many times before next year’s event but want to see you here for sure in Spring of 2016! 

As we come to the end of the Spring season, it is time once again to perform golf course renovations to keep the playing conditions up to the standard that we all come to expect at Danang Golf Club.  The greens renovations will be performed on May 13th and 14th and will consist of hollow tine coring and a top-dressing of sand.  Each of those days, only nine holes will be open for play.   The greens will take approximately three weeks to recover fully though they will be quite playable after 10 days.  This procedure is necessary to relieve the compaction of the soil as well as open up the root structure so that oxygen, water and nutrients can penetrate the root zone.  The wear from players and maintenance equipment throughout the year make this practice necessary once a year for continued turf health.  We realize that it is an inconvenience and we thank you for your patience.

Thank you,

Sincerely,
JOE MILLAR

Dear Golfers,

With the Club Championships in the book, the month of May will now be dedicated to renovating selected turf surfaces, especially the greens. As Joe has already stated the greens are in desperate need of an aerification (hollow tine).

Aerification – the working of a turf soil without destruction of the turf: e.g., core, solid tining, slicing, spiking and water injection.
Aeration of golf course playing surfaces is usually associated with hollow tining (coring). The procedure in which turf plugs are pulled from the green, tee or fairway and filled back with sand. This process is usually accompanied with a 2-3 week recovery period.

There are many different types of aerification methods that achieve great results without disruption play and without the golfers even knowing it has been done. Verti-draining or punching with small solid tines, slicing, spiking and water injection are just a few ways of aerifying turf grass that leaves little or no evidence that the practices has been completed. (Which is done at DGC on a regular basis). Why Aerify?

Believe it or not it benefits both the turf grass plant health and the golfer. Without quality playing surfaces members and golfers alike are going to become frustrated with the playing conditions, the game of golf and lose the thrill of competing.

Disrupting playing conditions to aerate surfaces by removing cores from the ground helps reduce thatch (sponginess), remove excess organic matter (which is detrimental to turf grass), relieves compaction, allows air and water to move through the growing medium and increases root stimulation.

Management is the most vital key of good turf grass. Overwatering and over fertilizing is a recipe for disaster. This vicious cycle will lead to soft, thatch, diseased and uninteresting golf and more disruption of play due to constant aerification.

Thank You,

Dan Brown
Golf Course Superintendent.
