Yesterday we removed the cover from the practice tee. Overall the tee looks good and there was significant germination. Though some of it looks spotty with continued warm weather as well as timely fertility applications, in a few weeks we will see a more consistent growth pattern. Nick and I fertilized the tee with an organic fertilizer and next we will be applying a starter fertilizer that will offer more phosphorous to the young seedlings. We are months away from opening the tee and are currently looking at early July for the opening. We also see very good germination on the fairway and target greens. These areas will go through the same establishment process as the tee and should fill in nicely over the course of the next few weeks.
