Course updates

Since it has been a while since I posted some blogs. I thought I would post several to fill in the gap.


I have received many comments on the Foxes. Ranging from they are cool, to when are you going to get rid of them, to they are eating the squirrels. Well, the Fox are still here and behaving themselves for the most part. I say for the most part, because they have started digging in recent weeks. They seem to be burying food. Which normally would not be a big deal. However, when it is in my 17th green, it's a big deal.

Here is the 17 greens one morning. We have to fill in the hole and repair with Hex shaped turf plugs. They subsequently dug up the same spot 4 days later. We then repaired it again. So far it has been untouched.

Coyote URINE

I did some research as to how to deter Fox behavior. Everything I read pointed to trying a natural predator sent. Enter Coyote Urine. The idea is to speed the Coyote sent around the area you don't want Fox. So, this is what I tried.

This is a small container with a cotton ball that you soak in Coyote Urine. I applied these to the perimeter of 17 green. At first it seemed that it wasn't helping. However, it may have deterred them. As I have not had another digging incident on this green for a couple weeks. They may be showing some interest in 12 and 16 green now. Time will tell.
