G O L F C O U R S E U P D A T E T H E R E S T O R A T I O N P R O C E S S I hope everyone has had an opportunity to participate in a Friday night course tour. The changes to the golf course are remarkable and the work speaks for itself. Our Head Pro, Michael Nicoletti, will continue to schedule these tours, so be sure to sign up for the next one! Since the last newsletter, we have accomplished a lot. All greens have been seeded and all green surrounds sodded. Both are coming along very nicely. The work included reshaping all greenside bunkers, surrounds and putting surfaces. Our team has also made several repairs and adjustments to our irrigation. The bunkers are coming nicely too. The installation of the Better Billy Bunker system is almost complete on all greenside bunkers. We have begun adding sand, and the Idaho White sand really looks great! The next milestone will commence this coming week and that is the sprigging of the fairways and seeding of the rough. Fairways will be sprigged with Santa Anna Hybrid Bermuda, and the roughs will be seeded with tall fescue. This combo of grassing techniques and varieties of turf will give GBGC the best chance for success in this transition zone where both cool season and warm season turf varieties can thrive at different times of the year.
