Practice tee quality

As if it was not a tough enough year to grow established turf, we also need to establish new turf on our practice tee. One of the tricks to establishing turf is the propagation of seedlings. Keeping seedlings and their tender roots alive without over watering and promoting disease is a challenge.
One of the ways we will attempt to improve the quality of our turf is by providing a light mist to these new plants several times a day.
Beginning next week, we will begin a light watering regime on the practice tee. We recommend that you leave the tee area for fifteen minutes from 12:00-12:15 and 3:00-3:15 pm each day. I was going to say we will close the tee, but there really is not a reason to close it, it will be open for anyone who would like to practice for playing in the rain. Towels will not be provided. Seriously, this time will be used to lightly mist the surface and should result in faster recovery.
We will post signs as a reminder.
We hope that this minor inconvenience will be seen as a positive improvement of our practice tee.
Day two of the presidents cup, shootout should begin about 2:00.
Come join the fun, we drive on the green banks and it is "not a problem."
