Fungicides are pesticides, or plant protectants, that kill or prevent the growth of fungi that cause disease. Preventative treatment is preferable on greens and tees as lower rates can be used if you are ahead of the disease. On fairways, this approach is more expensive because the acreage is larger: we have 8 acres of greens as opposed to 60 acres of fairways.

Greens are sprayed every week and fairways are sprayed as needed, about every 14 to 21 days in the stressful period of summer, Memorial Day to Labor Day.
