USGA Summary Points:An irrigation audit was conducted on fairways #2 and #7 during summer of 2022. Low Quarter Distribution Uniformity was determined at 0.68 on #2 and 0.51 on #7. Irrigation averaged 0.21" (Min 0.09", Max 0.32") on #2 and 0.16" on #7 (Min 0.05", Max 0.36"). From May 1 to August 10, 2022, soil moisture was recorded on two fairways using a Pogo Pro. Values ranged from a minimum of 0% to a maximum of 64.5% on #2 and from 0% to 65.9% on #7. Areas that consistently exhibited volumetric soil moisture values of less than 20%, approximately 35%, and greater than 40% were selected and marked as dry, moist, and wet, respectively. Toro Turfguard soil moisture sensors will be installed into those areas. Due to material supply chain issues and resulting manufacturing problems, delivery of Toro Turfguard wireless soil moisture sensors was delayed, and sensors are expected to be installed in spring of 2023.
