Turf Recovery

The season is winding down but we have been blessed with a beautiful weather pattern. Warm temperatures and abundant sunshine have been good for golf and turf alike. Our staff will be reduced starting October 15 so our focus will continue to shift from mowing and grooming to just trying to clean up leaves while finishing a few projects before winter.

With the season coming to a close, we thought we would share some photos of the progress we have made this fall. Below we have some pictures of the 3rd fairway and the 8th fairway. We are proud of the amount of turf we have been able to recover in just two months time.

Above are photos of the 3rd fairway taken August 15th and October 14th. In the first picture, the turf in the fairway and intercut are in a state of decline. In the second, you see the same area in a picture taken on October 14. This area has improved greatly through sod replacement, reseeding, favorable weather, and cart restriction.

Below are 'before and after' pictures of the 8th fairway
