White clover is a low growing perennial. As you can see on the golf courses, it's had a great year and is spreading rapidly by low, creeping stems. These stems are below the mowing height and that's one reason why it is so prolific. Originating in Europe it is used in foraging situations in North America and is most adaptable to cool, moist climates. It is not useful on golf courses.

Late fall is the best time to treat broadleaf weeds as the herbicide is more effectively translocated to the roots. We will treat both courses with herbicide sometime after Labor Day to eradicate the clover. Until then, know that we've got it scheduled as soon as the timing permits.
