4 North Part 2…

Leave a comment

The greens complex renovation on 4 North has been completed!  As our previous post stated, one new bunker was built in front of the green, and the two bunkers on the right side were dug up so we could install drain lines, liners, and new sand!  The complex was sodded with 7, 500 sq. ft. of two types of sod.  The approach/fairway sod is a blend of bentgrass and annual bluegrass.  It is maintained at a height of 0.5″.  The rough sod is a blend of Kentucky bluegrass and 20% fine fescue.  It is maintained at a height of 3″.  Rooting and recovery should take approximately 2 weeks.  Thank you for your patience while the new sod takes root and the new sand settles.  The before and after pictures are posted below.  See you on the course!
