Benjamin and Ruperto are carefully sodding small patchy areas on the eight greens that will open next week (1,3,4,5,10,13,14,16). Turf from our L93 nursery green is being utilized to accomplish this.
Felix and Oscar are slit seeding large dead patches on the other ten greens with bentgrass seed. Poa annua seed will also germinate in these areas that will be covered with sections of tarps. With minimal amounts of traffic they should begin to recover.
The trial putting green seeded last fall to different plots of creeping bentgrass is in spectacular condition. We have begun lowering the height of cut and will continue to do so over the next few weeks until we reach our in-season putting green height. Currently, the green is right on track to open on June 1st as projected.
