Root Pruning

I’ve been asked what are those 2 lines around course?  On October 23rd we root pruned around trees to stop tree root competition with our turf.  These areas will heal up in a couple of weeks.

Tree roots compete for water and nutrients against our turf.   This will help turf withstand carts and weather events thru the season.  Even palm tree roots can be found 15 feet from base of a palm.  Tree roots impact all playing surfaces from greens to bunkers.
