When Will The Practice Green Open?

My goal is to have the practice green open early next week!

From a health stand-point, the green is recovering very nicely. From a playability stand-point, it will take a while for the surface to play like the other eighteen greens. We are topdressing the green aggressively to smooth the surface. We continue to overseed small bare spots. The height of cut is being lowered slowly so we do not cause any scalping damage. Scalping damage is the biggest concern at this point. This type of mechanical damage would set back recovery considerably.

Our early season patience will ensure a much improved practice green for the rest of this year and years to come.
