I've had many questions about what are plan is for number 7 on the River side so I'll take this time to outline our plan.
|Just a reminder of what #7 looked like a couple months ago and numerous times over the past couple seasons|
|The majority of our battle has been with the silt that the flooding leaves behind.|
With Zoysia prices as high as they are and knowing that this fairway will go under water again at some point, we do not think it is feasible to resod the entire fairway to Zoysia.

As far as the fairway goes, we have opted for a seeded-type bermuda grass variety. This is the reason the lower fairway is still roped off. The germination period for this seed is much longer than other seeds so even though we have had seed down now for a couple weeks we are just now starting to see some seedlings.
