When the weather finally breaks and you make it out to the course, one of the improvements you'll see is the expansion of the upper practice tee. By having a retaining wall installed at the front of the tee, additional teeing ground was created.
We have sodded this area to one of the new, cold tolerant, Bermudagrass varieties, Latitude 36. As we've seen on the lower practice tee, the Bermudagrass thrives in the heat. With a quick recovery when it's hot, this will now allow more use of the upper tee during the summer months.
The crew is finishing some sod work on the front of the upper tee.
