COURSE REPORT good stewards of the land and make the course sustainable in the future. While there are savings involved, the major thrust was water conservation and focus in the "native" areas, and in the bar- rancas on the Players Course. The Players Course has many areas where fescue- and pampas- type grasses were growing. This gave the course a native look; unfortunately, these grasses aren't native to our area and started to overtake the landscape. We are in the process of removing those grasses, replacing them with desert plants, and installing drip irrigation. We also will be mulching the areas to give them a rich dark look that will accentuate the green turf areas. Not only will this change the look, but it will better the playability of the courses, and ensure sustainability in the future. CELEBRITY COURSE >> The look of the Celebrity Course has remained rich and lush in flowers and plant life over the years, and this year is no different. The only major change to previous years is that we delayed the seeding in the wildflower beds. These areas can be challenging from a maintenance perspective as weeds have a tendency to infil- trate the grow-in of the wildflowers. By delaying the seeding process, we hoped to limit weed growth by waiting until the tem- peratures dropped a bit. Due to this fact, the bloom of wildflowers will be a little later than in previous years, but the look in prime season should be fan- tastic. We know the importance of the colorful look on the Celebrity Course, and we hope to make it even better in 2019. Tune in next month for some more IWGR tidbits, and remem- ber – fairways and greens! ................................................................................................................................................. > CLICK HERE to book tee times on the Players and Celebrity courses.
