Many of you have noticed the area around #9 gold, white/green, and red tee is under construction. This project will be one of many in the efforts to bring back our fescue areas. Before seeding the area, we took care of a few structural issues, to promote a longer lifespan. First, we improved the drainage adjacent to the #8 green cart path by installing a new drain line in the newly seeded fescue.
Also, adjacent to #9 tee’s pond, we uncovered a buried catch basin and built up the pond bank. By raising the pond bank, the pond will be able to hold more water and prevent an overflow onto the cart path.
Lastly, we seeded the whole area with fescue. Although the temperatures have been below average, we have been able to germinate much of the seed.
