Golf on July 7, 2016 was suspended due to a 30mm torrential downpour of rain in just under an hour. In that time the course was flooded on many of the fairways and roughs. Bunkers were washed-out leaving them unplayable with unfair lies and aesthetically displeasing. The decision to halt play for the rest of the night allowed the maintenance to repair the golf course back to its original conditions in a much faster manner due to no carts and foot traffic on the course.

Prepping Spruce to Open
Irrigation Start-up and Ongoing Projects
April 12, 2016
We contracted out a professional stump grinder to not only remove the stump but also the roots that could potentially create injuries from unseen objects. The removal of these roots acts as a safety precaution but it also allows the grass to grow without the need to compete for water and nutrients; the removal of the branches/trees allows air flow and sunlight to reach the ground and ultimately allow for a healthy stand of grass.
The daily low temperature have slowly withered allowing us to fire up our irrigation system

Pruning of Spruce Trees
March 22, 2016
The tree lines of the Innisfail Golf Club for years have posed a difficult hazard for both the golf and maintenance aspect.
Throughout the fall and the spring we have been clearing the bottom four to five feet of the spruce trees to open up the course for both playability and ease of maintenance. The majority of the labour has been done on the tree lines along the fairways and around some tees and greens. However in areas that provide protection against errant golf balls, the limbs were left lower for protection.
Snow Blowing has Begun
March 15, 2016
Initial blowing of the greens that have accumulated ice during the winter.
Within the last month you have probably noticed several golf courses without snow on the course and you maybe asking why we still have as much as we do or for that matter why we haven’t started to remove snow. As you may already know the Innisfail Golf Club is located on a one of a kind property that is surrounded by thousands of trees, undulated and rolling topography with an abundance of low lying areas. These characteristics act as shelter belts, providing shade and protection ultimately inhibiting wind and sun light from breaking up snow covers. As of March 10 we have decided to remove the snow cover from a few specific greens that maybe threatened by ice damage. Certain turf species are more susceptible to ice damage and can only survive a short duration under solid ice cover. The rest of the greens remain covered in snow; this allows the greens to maintain moisture naturally while providing cover in case of a sudden cold temperature drop that may injure the turf.
