Bentgrass Removal Update

Today was our second, of three, trial applications to remove Bentgrass in the rough.

5 green surround, between 14 and 17, as well as to the right of 17, comprise the trial plots. As you can see, the Bentgrass is turning white, and will get even more bleached over the next several weeks. As mentioned in the previous post, these areas were decided upon to determine how much Bentgrass existed in the rough, as well as learning the best re-establishment techniques.

We will be seeding new grass into all of these areas this week. They will not be Ground Under Repair, but we ask that you avoid driving through them whenever possible, as it will help with the reestablishment of the new Kentucky Bluegrass seedlings. You will see cart directional signs once the seedlings have emerged, as a guide/reminder.

Thank you for your patience, and cooperation. Enjoy watching the transformation take place!
