I wanted to pass along a quick update before the official opening day (4/6/12) on the latest on the golf course and grounds at
Hyde Park. Overall, the golf course is progressing quite well, the Zoysia grass is well ahead of schedule and the greens are almost 100% healed from the recent aerification.
As you can note in the picture in this post, the Zoysia grass that was laid on the approaches on #2, 13 and 17 last fall are lagging behind the established Zoysia grass. This is very typical, even with the warmer temperatures, being a warm season grass it will need warmer temperatures and increased fertility to increase the density. An herbicide will be applied once we are convinced the warm temperatures are here to stay.
The second photo in this posting is the south side of the parking lot. We are currently reshaping this area to add additional plantings along the entire side.
