- A step cut of rough has been added to all fairway and green/apron perimeters. The playing surfaces now transition from .5" to 1" to 2.5+".
- We're implementing practices that conserve resources such as water and labour. For example, outside of a step cut of 1" primary rough around fairway perimeters, the length of secondary rough is now increased from 2" to 2.5" and we've completely turned off irrigation stations on outlying areas that typically do not receive play at all, such as the large grassy area between 7 green and the roads north and west, and the rough behind 11 and 3 greens. We'll be seeding drought tolerant varieties of grass such as fescue into these areas in late summer and fall, and then permanently reduce daily maintenance practices in those outlying areas. They'll present a more natural aesthetic and require fewer daily maintenance practices. We'll reallocate those reduced resources, such as labour hours, irrigation, and fertilizer and chemical applications to the finer details required for better playing surfaces on greens, fairways, and teeing areas.
