The Whistler Golf Club has just completed Phase 3 of it green renovation project. This phase started with the new bent grass sod being trucked up from Abbotsford BC to Whistler. From there about 10 pallets of sod were lifted off the delivery trucks and brought to each green to begin the installation process. The crew was able to get about 5 greens done a day. Following the greens installation the collars were stripped of the old sod and new blue grass collars were installed around the greens. Lastly the irrigation crew went on full alert and began watering the sod in- yes even with snow around still!
“This phase was definitely the most work but it went really well” said Dave Gottselig, Golf Course Superintendent. “Getting the sod out to the green sites was a challenge but once we got it there the installation crew did a great job of getting it down quick. Now we will wait two weeks or so for the sod to knit in then we will begin the final phase of the project which includes numerous top dressings of the greens, rolling the greens and finally start cutting the greens down to playing height”
