It's a Jungle Out There

With all of the rain we have had this year the native grass areas are thriving if not out of control. Recently we have begun to selectively mow down areas in the native that are in play and that are overly penal. Most of the time you can't even find your ball let alone play it, so it makes no sense leaving these native areas out of control. These areas have been mowed down to 4" which will now provide a buffer between the mowed rough and long natives grasses.

The mowing will help with pace of play issues as well, so that excessive amounts of time are not spent looking for balls that are just off the maintained portion of the golf course.
