Slit Seeding

In an effort to improve the conditions of the fairways and areas that have suffered, due to cart traffic, we have begun slit seeding. This is not typically the optimum time of the year to do this because of the excessive heat that we usually experience. So, you will also see a number of roller base sprinklers throughout the golf course ensuring that the weakest areas of turf remain wet enough for the seed to germinate and become established. We have also roped off many high traffic areas in order to enable these areas to heal. This process will continue throughout the rest of the summer. We realize that these un-manned sprinklers on the golf course will be somewhat of an inconvenience. However, our goal is to get the golf course conditions back to the quality that we have all grown to expect. Thank you for your patience and understanding. The long-term result of the work we are doing will be well worth the short-term inconvenience.
