Why are there so many markings near the fairways?!
Last night we made our 1st roundup application to the fairway expansion areas for phase 2 of the restoration. We will wait a few days to see our success and touch up areas as needed prior to seeding. Some tire tracking may be evident in the next few days as well, this is because in order to spray the entire area we had to drive in our spray every so often. We tried to exit in areas that will also be renovated so that we didn’t have to re seed too many unplanned rough spots.
Please try to stay out of these areas over the next few days. More importantly, as we begin to grow in the new seed it is crucial that all traffic stays out of the germinating seed. We will continue to communicate as the processes progress but in the meantime if you have any questions please feel free to stop one of us and ask.
It is an odd feeling fighting the elements all year to keep the turf alive and happy only to turn around and intentionally kill 5 acres when the weather is perfect!
Below are a few pictures of the process.
Have a great week!
