I know what you are all thinking, another blog on Toronto GC. But, I can’t help myself given the quality of my recent pics here.
As evidenced here the XGD staff is progressing nicely on the greens at TGC. These pictures show the fourth green, a 175 yard par three to an extremely tricky green sloping front to back, making it hard to hold golf shots. Also, the quality of our install is highly visible in these pics. Restoring the greens sod to its original height is one of the holy grails of XGD. The others being the seven different compaction steps before sodding even occurs.
After Labour Day, we begin at Cape Arundel GC with TDIGolf http://www.tdigolf.com/ on the major restoration at this classic old club that has been relatively untouched to this point with no fairway irrigation until this project. Our XGD portion here includes the XGD install on five greens and more than 100,000sqft of fairway XGD.
I just finished up a round at my local course, Bruce Beach GC. This oldest course in Bruce County opened in 1907, and recently added stunning new tee signs, edged out original bunkers, and the application of a herbicide on the sand green edges to slow the intrusion of unwanted grasses to the putting surface. I really y scored well this time, and am quickly learning the local nuances of the pasture golf course. http://www.pasturegolf.com/
Bye for now, Poor Old Dirt & Grass Farmer
