Time for Overseed

Next week will begin the overseeding process for our tee complexes and target greens on the course.  We will start promptly Monday morning and should have the majority of the course finished by the end of the day.  After the seeding has been completed the tee tops will have a fresh sanded appearance with irrigation being ran a couple times during the day to promote rapid germination for the next 5-7 days.  Once adequate germination occurs we will begin mowing.  The first mowing usually occurs 2 weeks after the seed hits the ground.  During this process the tees may be moderately wetter than normal but this should be only a mild distraction to the golfer.  So over the next 2 weeks please be patient with our staff and realize you will have some beautiful overseeded tees to play from till early March!
