Course Update:
Insight into Some of Our Ongoing Challenges on the Golf Course
 
Greens are constantly changing with the temperatures - here's why:

Transitional greens are often bumpy throughout the growing season due to different growing habits of the grassesIn this area of British Columbia, we have a growing season that allows Poa Annua to grow very vigorously. We can all see that in certain areas of the golf course now, with all the seed heads and the amount of irregular grass growth on some of the greens and fairwa ys.  Poa thrives in the springtime temperatures of 10 degrees at night and up to 20 degrees during the day. When the temperature goes over 20, it slows down this growth rate, and when temperatures rise above 25 degrees, ‘Poa’ actually struggles to survive. 

Poa, on its own, makes for a great putting surface; so why do we not just seed the greens with this grass? Because It is not available for purchase as it is on the noxious weed list for Canada. It is the grass that gets into every crack in the concrete and consumes your gardens if allowed.


We seed our greens with bentgrass because it is readily available, it can tolerate the cutting heights and diseases, and it thrives in our warmer summer temperatures. The majority of golf courses in Metro Vancouver use bentgrass as the main grass seeded to greens, fairway, and tees, along with some fescue and rye grasses

Thanks to our hardworking staff, the golf course is fantastic - and getting better each week! We are constantly striving to keep the bentgrasses healthy so that the Poa does not take hold and completely take over the putting surfaces.
