5 Tee Results

Last fall, we resurfaced the 5th tee with bentgrass.  It has been open since April, but is just now starting to really look good.  Our cool, wet April delayed its growth for a while.  Soil temperatures have now risen to a point where it is looking happy!

The new Red tee on #1 is also now open.  It takes a while to develop soil fertility and culture when starting with a sandy mix.  These new tees are undergoing the transition from seedlings to an mature turf system and are still developing root mass and a thatch layer.  Some have commented on how firm they can be when dry.  This will go away in time with aerification and normal maturation processes.
