New Slit Seeder and #6 Update

New Slit Seeder

We were fortunate to receive a brand new slit seeder this past week for fairways and tees. The machine is a TriWave 45 from TurfCo. What previously took hours to seed by hand can now be done in minutes.

Once we slit seed, topdressing is applied then dragged in. Our goal is to have germination within two weeks and let the young plants mature the rest of the Fall and Winter. Once Spring hits with warmer soil temps the plants will rapidly spread laterally into the bare areas.


We are moving along slowly but surely with the conduit for the future fan at #6. As can be seen from the pictures above we have run into a large quantity of rocks while trenching.
