The Sprigging Process

   The first set of sprigs for the tees and fairways arrived by refrigerated truck on Friday, May 24th and were planted on the tees and fairways on holes 1,7,9,10 and 18 as well as on #17 fairway.  

 Sprigs were dispersed by hand on tees...  

Cut in, and rolled...

And finally, watered

Sprigging fairways was done slightly different using a machine that cuts the sprigs into the soil as they are dispersed.

This process left tight rows of new plants

Now with 24 hour monitoring of irrigation cycles and moisture levels these plants will take root and quickly begin filling in the fairways and tees.
