Seeding Trial
 August is upon us! Hard to believe how time flies, the Grounds Staff and I continue to move forward with many initiatives to enhance the golf course and grounds. The rough still continues to be a topic of discussion with overall good density and a playability challenge. Areas of decline are sporadic and are limited to Annual Bluegrass, nevertheless this is great opportunity to set-up trials for possible future renovation of the roughs to turf type tall fescue at HP. Our goals are to evaluate; seeding timing, seeding techniques, rates and chemical options to remove annual bluegrass prior to and after establishment. The trials will begin the first week of August between the 11th green and the 10th fairway, noted in the photo below.

Other initiatives include:

  • Preparations related to the Northside of the Legacy plan, which include: Construction of temporary parking areas, relocation of irrigation infrastructure and landscape design
  • Aerification of the fairways 
  • Tree pruning and removal of dead trees
  •  Putting green aerification-9.11.17
As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with questions or feedback about the grounds at HP.
