BGCC Turf Bulletin
May 3, 2016
With the warmer weather arriving, the Marigolds (dandelions) are in full bloom. To some they are attractive, to others they are not. Weed spraying is a sensitive subject throughout our community. As good environmental stewards of our property, we stand by provincial regulations to only spray important areas on the golf course. Public access areas are prohibited for spraying (i.e. clubhouse & pro shop grounds), similar to that of your home lawn. These areas are particularly challenging to keep weeds out, with most being cultivated by hand.
All spraying is done early morning before golf. We do have weather considerations when spraying. The need for clear sunny days and no rain in the forecast is important when weed spraying. The sun helps dry the product more quickly for best results, and less smell.
If anyone has questions concerning our spraying of the golf course, do not hesitate to contact Dean Baker (Course Superintendent)
