Improved Rough

The photo below shows the evidence and success of the project where we widened the fairway on #2 red. In less than 8 weeks we have gone from a weak - thin turf to a dense stand of turf. This was achieved by reducing the shade in the area and by providing a wider area for carts to drive, thus reducing compaction of the soil.
The photo below shows where we removed a dead tree and widened the fairway on #2 red which resulted in improved turf conditions.
The photo below shows the thin turf in #2 red right rough where traffic and shade had reduced the quality of the turf.
