P.B. Dye was onsite this past weekend at DeBordieu Club to reshape the bunkers and mounds surrounding the #18 green. The new design should make our great finishing hole more enjoyable.
The sprigging and sodding of the fairways and rough is complete. Both DeBordieu Golf Course Superintendent, Brad Lattimore and Modern Turf are very pleased with the progress so far. The recent rain events have encouraged new growth for the sprigs. Brad is expecting to start mowing some of the fairways on Monday. After the fairways have been mowed for the initial time, the application of herbicides will begin to help control the weeds.
The greens look great! Brad has started the process of slowly reducing the height of the turf. When the course opens in September, Brad is hopeful that they will be rolling between 11 and 12.
With all the new grasses on the course, the sprinklers will be running almost non-stop during the day. Please keep this in mind if you plan to use the cart paths. Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this process.
