Blue Knob Golf Course Update
As we proceed with the caring for Blue Knob Golf course, we will try to keep you posted on what happens.
A multitude of fungal pathogens attack creeping bent grass (CBG). However, the types of diseases that occur and their severity vary considerably among regions. For example, snow molds and yellow patch (synonymous with cool-temperature brown patch) are commonplace on golf courses in Northern states.
Dollar spot may be caused by at least two different fungi, but the taxonomy of these pathogens remains unclear. However, this disease is without question the most common disease of CBG. In regions where it is chronic, it is difficult and extremely expensive to manage.
Predisposing conditions: Dollar spot is most destructive when days are warm, nights are cool and heavy dew forms. For some regions, it is primarily a late-spring and early summer disease, which often recurs in the autumn. In more Northern regions, it is primarily a summer disease. In some years and regions, dollar spot may be active from late spring to late fall. It is more destructive to slow-growing or poorly nourished turf.
