Just spent a frustrating afternoon in our 19th hole trying to understand why an agronomist would recommend a zoysia grass for a hilly, clay based, rock infested, crappy course. Price tag Iím hearing is $6mil plus including irrigation.
Our Board and greens staff treat our course like a damn laboratory. Zoysia collars around super quick bermuda greens. Patches of different zoysias and bermuda grasses in different fairways for observation.
I read where Hasentree CC has struggled and I hear from my member friends that the Dogwood at CCNC project may not be as pleasing as hoped after some time.
Why would anyone try to remove 100 acres of really good common bermuda and replace with zoysia in central NC? We have a ton of play as well.
Thanks for any thoughts or experience!
