Dave West Crowned 2018 Wyncote Club Champion!
Congratulations Dave on becoming the 2018 Club Champion! Dave was 1 up on Jack Carrigan, a former Wyncote title holder, with only the 18th hole remaining. He then proceeded to knock his 3rd shot stiff for a tap in birdie to clinch the victory! Mike Duering took home the Men’s NET Championship and Greg Ziegler was crowned the Senior division winner!
A special thanks to all of our participants for playing in the 2018 match play; looking forward to a stellar year again in 2019. I would also like to thank Mark McGreevy and all his staff, owner Jim Pepple and Wyncote golf shop staff for assisting in running our premier event.
Best Regards! Tim Brown PGA

The 'dome' that usually persists over Wyncote keeping away rain showers in the past has obviously burst. Since mid July (following a nearly 30 day dry spell) Wyncote has received upwards of 40in of rain and several flooding events. As the pattern of rain seems to be coming to an end we now need to focus on whats next. If you come to play Wyncote its possible you can play an entire round wondering 'whats that superintendent complaining about the weather again for?'. The maintenance staff has been(literally sometimes), working around the clock to get a vast majority of the course into the condition you expect from Wyncote. Greens, tees and 95% of fairways may not be fast and firm, but in excellent shape and headed that direction. Is also possible you, unfortunately, encounter a plugged ball in dead turf on a fairway or a thin spot in the rough. Small areas on the fairways and some low areas on the course had standing(or running) water on them for over a month. A disease caused by the consistent wet and lack of sunshine has thinned the often complained about, once thick rough. We have been anxiously awaiting this current stretch of weather and will be out in full force seeding and venting these water logged areas. We also will be installing some drains in the off-season so the persistently poor draining areas will thrive in the future.
We have already stopped restricting golf carts to most parts of the course, just be aware of low lying areas or areas that are being renovated.
There is a lot going on under the surface as well. Putting green surfaces have stayed consistent through all the harsh weather. Underneath the surface is where I make my money. A good root system is what allows us to provide excellent putting surfaces as well as withstand traffic, harsh weather and disease. In previous posts I discussed that roots actually need oxygen more than water, and wet years are much more difficult than dry years to maintain healthy turf. Below you can see proof in pictures. The first picture is what our root system looks like currently. Shallow roots with the occasional root following the oxygen in a vent/aerification hole. The second picture is from a drought year and you can see a very strong root system. The good news is the weather is changing and cool nights and drying conditions are ideal for fall root growth. Happy putting.
