In contrast to this, the upper tee's turf takes a whole lot more work to maintain. The divot mix used up top includes: sand mix, pennmulch, fertilizer, seed, and dye. All of these ingredients are carefully measured and put into a cement mixer. If that wasn't enough, we also use a tractor-mounted seeder on the upper tee weekly, and have been hand-watering it daily to encourage seed germination.
In a tough summer like this, it's nice to have a small piece of the course that is relatively easy to maintain.
