Sodding Green Surrounds

Over the years, since the course restoration was completed in 2003, areas next to the green edges have become contaminated with a mix stand of grasses.  Creeping bentgrass and poa annua have crept into the rough surrounding the greens.  If a players ball comes to rest in one of these grasses and not the bluegrass, they end up with a really difficult lie.  Our goal over the next week is to identify these areas and replace the contaminated turf with new bluegrass sod.  We also have some areas where the turf is quite thin for one reason or another and those ares will also be replaced with bluegrass sod.
