Where are the tee markers?! 
 
You may have noticed something missing on the course recently, all of the tee markers have gone missing!  Have no fear they did not grow wings and fly south for the winter.  We have removed the tee markers for the remainder of the season because we are attempting to limit turf damage during these winter months.  We are encouraging our golfers to tee off wherever they would like on the box.  We will bring the markers out of hibernation and back to the boxes in early March before the official golf season begins in Colorado. Thank you for your understanding and we hope you enjoy the freedom to tee it up on the box where ever you want!
*Harvard Gulch will have mats out on their boxes this winter to prevent turf damage.

Trees
By Steve Hasler, Superintendent, Kennedy
 
 When we are playing our round of golf we are often cursing them or not even noticing them, trees. Trees on the golf course are a vital part of our eco system.  Trees convert Carbon Dioxide into oxygen for us to breath. Trees improve air quality, preserve the soil and contain erosion. Trees support a wide array of wildlife for us to enjoy. In addition, trees certainly can add to our enjoyment and experience on the golf course. There are a few common tree care tips we all can perform to ensure that our trees stay as healthy as possible.
Pruning – proper tree pruning is necessary to the overall health of the tree. Waiting until winter is a good practice that will invigorate new spring growth.  Never remove more than ¼ of the total crown of the tree per pruning. Make sure the tools you use are in good shape and sharp. It is also good to wait for the coldest part of winter to pass before pruning allowing the tree to harden off.  Make your cuts outside the ridge collar or swollen area were the branch meets the trunk. Do not leave a protruding stump or cut into the trunk. Avoid pruning in late fall.
Mulching – applying mulch around the base of the tree (especially new trees) is a must. Mulch insulates the soil and retains water for the tree. Mulch will help keep the weeds out around the tree and helps protect the tree from mower damage. Mulch also helps prevent soil compaction for the tree.
Watering- trees, especially newly planted trees expend a lot of energy getting established and it is necessary to water them. Watering will help speed up the root development. You want the soil around the tree to be damp at about a 2” depth.  Deep root watering is also beneficial to the tree. Do not over water the tree as this can create problems and even kill trees.
Trees are too often overlooked on the golf course and are a great addition to the course and our city. We have just completed planting 300 trees at Kennedy Golf Course and hope to plant more next spring. Thank you for visiting us in 2016 and we look forward to seeing you next season!
