Prepping the course for next year…
It’s been an incredible season of golf and it’s not over yet! We experienced an abundance of wonderful golfing weather! We saw many new faces, all the regulars and we’re forever grateful for it after being so closed off the year prior. If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that we don’t take advantage of the great outdoors and what a little fresh air can do for us all. It’s so important, and with a sport like golf — you get to multitask — spend time outdoors, soak up the sun, enjoy the fresh air and relax while playing a sport you thoroughly enjoy!
As we enter into cooler temperatures & begin prepping the golf courses for winter conditions, here is what you can expect to see during your last few rounds of golf this year.
For the Oaks Golf Course:
We’ll begin overseeding the front nine fairways, trimming the trees along the tee boxes to enhance playability, applying a new surface road to the entrance road and upgrading some of the irrigation throughout the course!
For Meadowview Golf Course:
We’ll begin overseeding all the fairways and doing some bunker renovations, too!
WHY DO WE OVERSEED?
In golf, overseeding is a maintenance process. Grass seed is spread on top of the existing grass to promote new growth or to swap out seasonal turfs, essentially replacing once type of grass with another.
Because various grass types go dormant in the winter, it is essential to overseed with a grass that doesn’t do this so that grass continues to grow throughout the fairways regardless of season. In the Spring, the process will be reversed; we’ll begin overseeding the fairways with the regular season grass so that it can grow throughout the Spring & Summer seasons.
This ensures the health of the fairways & overall playability for all.
While we’re sad the regular season of golf is coming to an end soon, we’re excited to begin prepping all the golf courses for Winter so that come the Spring, they’re in their BEST shape for yet another beautiful season!!
