Today we are mowing the ryegrass for the first time. It has been 10 days since we planted the seed. We will manage the rye at a height of 5/8 of an inch. This will allow the Bermuda grass some extra protection and give the rye some time to mature before the really cold weather arrives. Fertilizer will be a applied in small amounts every 10-14 days. We will also do another light seeding in another couple of weeks. This will allow us to fix any skips or thin areas.
Here is 18 fairway after being mowed the first time after seeding. Should make for good fall,winter spring playing conditions.
