You may have noticed that there are three bunkers on the left side of #18 fairway that have been stripped of all turf. We are doing this to install drip irrigation on these steep slopes. Overhead irrigation seems to run off these steep slopes and not soak into the soil so we are going to water from the underground using drip. Here are some pictures of the trenches being dug for the tubing:
Although I much prefer seeding to sodding, these slopes are just way too steep to seed. Therefore we will be sodding them. These WILL NOT be Fine Fescue which is found in the native roughs but a turf type that is maintained at primary rough height.
