What's Dying

You may be noticing areas in the fairways with yellow looking turf.  These are areas of cool season turf, poa annua, ryegrass, etc, that we have sprayed with round-up.  This is in a effort to clean up and bring the fairways back to a pure stand of bermudagrass.  For many years the club overseeded the fairways in the winter.  Since then numerous areas that have become contaminated.  A program of "cleaning up" was stated two years ago, and we are continuing the efforts.

This spring there will be numerous areas where the turf appears thin due to this practice.  But, we will be pushing the turf with fertilizer and growing it back in.
