Short Game Area
Last Thursday we sprayed the existing grass where the new short game area is to go with herbicide to eradicate it. As the picture shows, a week later there is a noticeable difference between the healthy grass in the forefront compared to the dying grass around the chipping green. We applied a second round of herbicide today to ensure a complete kill of the existing grass. We are scheduled to start stripping the sod off the chipping green tomorrow, Friday June 29 and plan to finish that part of the process the first part of next week. All this has to happen before the contractor can start work. Once work starts on the new short game area, for safety reasons, Maca's Trail will be closed for the duration of construction. The back driving range tee will also be closed due to lack of access. The primary driving range tee will be set-up on grass Friday-Sunday and mats Tuesday-Thursday.
