Grounds Crew Re-seeds Fescue Between #2 Tee/#6 Green and #9 Green
Recently we cut, mowed and cleaned the undesirable grasses between #2 tees and #6 green. This area was chosen because of the overcrowding of tall grass (Andropogon gerardii - Big bluestem). Although big bluestem is a great ornamental grass, in this area it was blocking views from the tees on #2 and providing unplayable lies to golfers around #6 green. This month we will spray a non-selective herbicide on the berm and re-seed with fescue.
Currently we are working on mowing and cutting the area behind #9 green. This area was chosen because of the blocked vistas from #9 green. In addition to the blocked vistas, the berm has been over taken by a very invasive and hard to kill weed (phragmite).
During these processes, please refrain from entering and/or playing in these areas until spring of 2017.
