Try My Choice Pricing at Denver Golf Today! 
 
When making your tee time, be sure to look at the My Choice Pricing feature to get better rates.  The My Choice Pricing feature allows the customer more choices when booking!  In the past, Denver Golf has offered one price all day long. Now, customers will have more pricing options. Those that are price sensitive will get to pick their tee time and the most reasonable price.  Since customers who are price sensitive will play at different times, to get a better price, customers who are time sensitive should find more tee times available when they prefer to play.  The customer controls what is more important to them, price or the time/day of play.

Fall
 Japanese Beetle Bugging You?
 
By Pam Smith, Director of Agronomy
We have seen an increasing number of Japanese Beetles in the Denver area.  They are the beetles with a rainbow metallic shell that you might be seeing in ornamentals, some trees, and milling around in creepy beetle piles.   Over the past five years I’ve seen their numbers grow from a few stragglers to a significant pest presence.  I witnessed this same pattern in the Midwest in the early 90’s and once these beetles found a home in turf, they were an annual nuisance that became very destructive.  We learned to cope with these insects and I’m sure we will have to do the same here in Denver.

Here is what you need to know:
NEVER NEVER NEVER use a Japanese beetle bag as a means to eliminate this pest.  These traps have both male and female sex pheromones along with a food scent that will draw beetles in from miles away.  If you really want to buy one, give it to someone you don’t like so they can get all the beetles at their house.
Adult beetles are tough to kill. I prefer not to kill the adults because treating ornamentals with insecticidal powder or sprays may also kill honey bees. So don’t do it. Check out some natural methods that may repel the beetle rather than killing it. 
While the adult beetle can cause some grief in ornamentals and some trees, it is their offspring that cause the most trouble.  The adult beetle lays eggs into lawns in mid-summer.  Those eggs hatch and grow into fat root-feeding white grubs that impact turf in the fall and spring.  Turf may appear drought stressed and you can easily pull it up like a rug.  Skunks and raccoons can cause a great amount of destruction in grub infested turf by rolling up turf searching for white grub snacks.  Best thing to do if you have grubs in your lawn is to apply an insecticide to turf in the spring and make sure it is the kind that lasts until fall.  We stay away from neonicotinoids and use some of the newer chemistries that don’t impact honey bees.
