Week number three of the golf course renovation was all about the grass. The fairways, which were seeded last week, have germinated and are growing very well. On sunny, windy days they require a moderate amount of attention, but not nearly the amount of attention as a sand based green. All greens were seeded this week, including #1 Green as its reconstruction was completed on Wednesday. A total of 3200 pounds of bentgrass seed has been planted on schedule. Although it may seem early, it is likely that staff will begin mowing by the end of next week.

|Lucas seeding our nursery green.|
We hope we don't need to use it, but it is best to be prepared.
|Nate pressing the seed into the sand for good soil/seed contact.|
This helps tremendously with germination percentage.
