The Green Up

There is a great deal of truth in the old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words, just look at the following time lapse pictures of the golf course.

Back in February I took the first picture of the eighteenth fairway and at that point I got the idea to document the spring green up process via pictures. When you are on site every day you do not see the dramatic changes taking place right in front of you. It is similar to not noticing how much your own children grow until one day they are bigger than you.

Each picture shows subtle changes in the color of the turf based on exposure, grass type and even different varieties of the same grass. Additionally you will notice the leafing out of the scrub Oak and other native plant materials.
