Project Updates

This past week we finished leveling and seeding the #7 and #16 Championship tees.  The sprinklers will be turning on automatically at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM for the next couple of weeks to ensure proper germination. 

Questions have arisen about the areas next to #14 tee and behind #15 green.  We are in the first stage of a project to reseed this area to fescue.  These areas have been designated as “low maintenance” and we are seeding a mix called “Bandon Dunes.”  Weather permitting, seeding of these areas will begin next week.  The best time for any seeding is August 15th - September 15th.  This time is ideal because soil temperatures are high and nighttime air temperatures are low.
