Urine Burn

Throughout the golf course there are many circular areas of dead or severely injured turf which were caused by Deer and Elk urine.

Deer and Elk urine is generally high in nitrogen content, and tends to have a high ph level. The concentration of nitrogen in one spot is too high, and as a result, the grass dies, while the outer ring seems to flourish from the right amount of fertility. Some of these smaller areas will typically regenerate on there own, while some of the larger areas require additional attention.

The larger areas in which recovery does not occur re-seeding or sodding will take place to properly repair the area in question.
