#11 fairway is ready for the new sod that will create a perfect edge. But, Mother Nature is not ready. We will wait until next week to get started with the sod border.

Preparing for the new sod border installation. Set to begin next week.

This picture shows the yellowing of the new turf, in comparison to the color of the existing turf on 18 approach. The color change was anticipated and will persist for another week or so. The yellowing is a result of the Poa annua reduction portion of the fairway re-grassing.

The fairways are a little off-color due to our Poa annua control program. But the turf density continues to increase and root growth is excellent.

Aaron Becker did a little reseeding on the few thin areas in fairways. There remains a few spots that we will sod later.

We are beginning the first mowing of all fairways today. The first mowing is critical, the tender plants will not tolerate any abuse. To be as gentle as possible, our boys will walker mow the entire 24 acres over the next two days.
