The Grass is Getting Greener

IMG_9351When talking about the Poppy Hills renovation project, it is safe to simply say that grass is greener.

The course continues to evolve from brown to green as Nos. 3-8 have been  grassed and are starting to grow in. Below is a view of No. 3:

In the next week, Frontier Golf, the RTJ II construction firm, will move the hydroseeding process to the first and second holes before beginning the back nine with No. 17.

The construction process – the moving of dirt and sand – is close to completion. While the grow-in period takes time and patience, the end result will be spectacular. The grass will be much greener at Poppy Hills come April.
