Innerseeding and aerification of the roughs.....

The aerfication and innerseding of the roughs has started and will continue through the 1st week of September. So far, the disruption has been minimal because there has been a dramatic change in the populations of turf type tall fescue and Kentucky Bluegrass. The annual bluegrass and creeping bentgrass has been reduced since the aggressive inner seeding program began 3 years ago. Following the seeding, an herbicide will applied multiple times to reduce weed encroachment, these applications will give the rough a white appearance.

Please do not operate the golf carts in the rough, the over 6000 pounds of seed that will be placed in the rough will need time to germinate. Cart signs will continue to be located on the fairways to direct traffic from the fairway to the paths.


If there are any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
