Due to constant flow of traffic, the walk-on at the 17th island green of the Stadium has suffered this winter. With the close down day for tournament rapidly approaching the agronomy staff went to work.
This is what the walk-on looked like before the restoration.
The old, worn out turf was removed. Due to the location cleanliness was a priority; boards were used to keep the entire area clean.
The sod we used to replace the old was cut very thick. Our aim was to bring some organic matter with the turf to give it a better chance at establishing in its new location.
This is the finished product, we will continue to give this area special attention until the tournament by which time it will be impossible to see where we had been.
