    Welcome to Wamego Country Club

    Get Your Golf On

The Wamego Country Club golf course was originally designed by famed architect Chick Trout and opened as a nine-hole course in 1920. The new nine-holes added to the course were designed by local architect Eric Langvardt. The par 70, 18-hole golf course nestled among the rolling hills of Wamego, Kansas was first opened in 1920 as a nine-hole course.

The Spring is a very busy time at the golf course.  Most of the applications that keep the turf looking its best, are applied during the spring.  Our turfgrass team has recently sprayed front (push up) greens with two types of plant growth regulators that inhibit the formation of seedheads on the poa annua plants on those greens.  Although our populations of poa is falling every year, we still like to keep the greens looking their best, and that means trying to reduce/eliminate the formation of seedheads.  Another application that was recently sprayed is our first of two preemergent herbicide treatments.  The first application mainly is targeted at crabgrass and some seasonal broadleaf weeds, we also add a post emergent herbicide application to this spray to take care of broadleafs that exist currently.  This application is very good on dandelions and clover, it is a newer chemistry that has been out for a couple of years and we have had great results.  We have also completed an outer rough overseed in the last couple of weeks.  These are mainly unirrigated areas that needed some more grass in them after last years summer.  The sucess of this overseed is largely up to mother nature, so pray for rain!  The annual burning of the native grass sections was also recently completed.  This is done in a back burn fashion, this helps keep the weed pressure down, germinate more native grass seed, and cleans up leaves and debris allowing the new growth to come on.  Plus you can find your ball for a couple of months if you hit an errant shot!  

The Turfgrass Team plans to use this blog to keep everyone informed much like a newsletter.
