April 4 - Greens covers/7 green update

This extensive process takes 2.5-3 days to finish. Tuesday (April 4th) holes 1,3,6,8,9,10,17,18 where complete. We are happy to say that there is no winter damage thus far on the putting surfaces we have seen, but some minor vole damage has been identified in collars and surrounds. The sodded green on 7 had the tarp/bubble wrap removed on Wednesday, March 29 only to be replaced with a grow-in tarp. This tarp allows us to start pushing the process of growing in the green while keeping it insolated. Turf Care monitors moisture levels and temperatures underneath the tarp daily.

Here are a few pictures from today.
