These areas have been managed to eliminate all but the fine fescue grasses, and we expect the areas to thin out as the warm weather returns. For the fescue to remain playable and attractive, it is important to eliminate all cart traffic from these areas. Carts will bend and break the seed heads making it much more difficult to get a golf club to the ball and through the grass making the penalty for an errant shot more severe than intended.
We have added short cuts through the fescue that will allow carts to return to their hole without impacting the areas. We expect these areas to add character and interest to the holes, and with your cooperation they will provide an attractive visual appeal as well. The photo below shows the fescue areas and the short cuts in red.
