New Nursery Green

The new sand based nursery green will be seeded in mid-October.

 

Area behind the 7th green is an ideal location for our new nursery green

 

The area behind the 7th green has been designated as a perfect location for a new nursery green.  The existing nursery sits in the shade during the majority of the winter months with the tall eucalyptus trees significantly impacting the amount of sunlight reaching the green.  A nursery green is an important part of the maintenance operation and is maintained just like the rest of the greens on the course.  Typically, the nursery is the best green on the golf course as it does not get the foot traffic from players and damage from ball marks.  We use the nursery to perform test plots when trying new fertilizers and other products and it is used for replacing thin or worn areas of the greens on the golf course.  The new nursery green will be seeded during early October with bentgrass and this will also serve as an ideal test to see how the new varieties of bentgrass perform in our coastal climate.
