Fall Seeding

We began our over-seeding process in mid-September and it takes us about 2 weeks to get everything done.  We use a large slit seeder on the back of a tractor, as well as a walk-behind seeder.  Our goal is to hit all cool season thin spots in the rough and most importantly, on green and tee banks.  This year we put out roughly 900 pounds of seed using a mixture of different varieties to try to get a better stand of grass in certain areas. We used: tall fescue, fine fescue, blue grass, rye grass and bent grass in a few places.  We seeded the cool season parts of our tee's and some of our green's collars with a rye grass and bent grass mix.  These new mixtures are something new to hopefully give us a better shot at keeping a solid stand of grass in weak areas going into next year.
