We gave it our best shot!

The hybrid Bermudagrass experience has run it's course after two years. This grass could not tolerate the worst two winter's in recent memory. WVCC's membership has been very patient in the spring of both 2014 and 2015 but the timing of regrowth was not in concert with usage demand.
This spring we even tried to overseed the practice approaches with perennial ryegrass to act as a nursery cover while the Bermudagrass  established again. But as of this date, we decided to move in a different direction. The 30,000 square foot practice tee was sodded with Kentucky Bluegrass and today we are laying 15,000 square feet of Bentgrass to the larger area of the practice approach.
The practice tee is open for play today but the newly sodded area of the approach will have to wait a couple of weeks to open.

Traffic control!

In an effort to reduce the amount of yellow stakes and rope on the golf course, we  instead went with the green and white post placed along the path. As this picture illustrates there may be some spots that "scream out" yellow stakes and rope. We will monitor this situation and adjust as needed.
