New for 2015…Waste Area Restoration
During the fall months, the waste areas buffeting several of the fairways were renovated & seeded with Tradition Fine Fescue. Based on the traditional fescue varieties found across the world, the grass will present a natural look while offering a more eco-friendly approach to maintaining the golf course. Cut at rough height, the fescue will serve to challenge the player off the tee as the waste areas were originally designed.
Characteristics Of Fine Fescue Grass
