Red/Gold tee boxes #3

The last few weeks we have been adding fill to create a new red/gold tee boxes on #3. The tee box on #3 has a few issues but the main one is a limited usable tee space and lots of play. We are basically building a new tee in the area between the white tee box and the red/gold to have more space and teeing options.

Light top dress and brush of greens

We did a light topdressing of greens on Monday(a little over a month after aerification)to smooth the putting surface, aid in preventing grain, dilute organic matter, and just improve general turf health.
