Ryegrass Transition and Bermudagrass Replacement

The turf care staff and east coast athletics company have completed laying sod on 10 fairway and around three green complex and approach. The turf care staff will be laying one more truck of Bermuda grass around six green,the left side of four fairway along with 10, 11 ladies tees. The high temperatures during the early part of June has most differently made it tough to transition from Rye grass to Bermuda grass. The shade line areas mostly around 3,4,5,6,10 have made it very challenging this year from the extended snow cover during the winter and the shade cover that has reduced the light for good Bermuda grass growth. Our plan for these heavy shaded areas are to selectively remove trees along 3,4,5 and 10 along with additional fescue seeding in the fall of the year. This will allow for good turf cover year round without any problems associated with shade. We will see very good coverage of Bermuda grass during the next few weeks.

We have been open for 12 months thus far after an extensive renovation to the golf course. We have had some challenges but over all the things we have been able to con trol I feel we have done well with. It takes around 3 years to have mature turf after a golf course has been renovation using Bermudagrass.
