Bird Baths on the Course

Over the next few weeks the Grounds staff will continue to level low areas in the fairways that have traditionally held water and of recently have seen turf decline. As you can see from the photo many of these areas require lifting of the sod and placing soil to move the water away via surface drainage. Areas in the fairways that cannot be raised to allow positive surface drainage will be drained using subsurface pipe and catch basins.

Completing these drainage improvements in the summer is ideal because the Zoysia is actively growing and will heal in rapidly. These areas will be played ground under repair.
