Dye's Valley Infrastructure Renovation Update - Fairway Regrassing

Over the last 7 months Dye's Valley has undergone a major infrastructure renovation that replaced the entire irrigation system, installed a new pump station, rebuilt all greens and resurfaced all fairways and tees.  The course officially opens to the public on September 23rd but not before hosting the 2014 Tour Championship.  With the Championship beginning in just 14 days we wanted to recap some of the work that has been completed this summer. 

Fairway Regrassing
 1st step was apply herbicide to the fairways.

 2nd step was to cultivate the surface with aerators and verti-cutters.

 3rd step was to clear all plant material using a street sweeper.
