Summer Construction Update – June 5, 2024

2024-06-11T15:16:27-07:00June 5th, 2024|

June 5, 2024 All 18 holes have been thoroughly pulverized and are now fully prepared for the hydroseeding process. This initial step of pulverizing the soil significantly enhances water retention, promoting the growth of the new TifTuf bermudagrass. With sustainability at the forefront of this project, the utilization of the pulverizer was crucial in ensuring sustainable water use year after year. Upon completion, Rams Hill is projected to reduce its annual water usage by 25%. Holes 6, 7, 11, 12, 14, and 15 have already been hydroseeded and are currently in the growth phase. Approximately two holes will be hydroseeded each week until all fairways, roughs, tees, and surrounds are completed. Listen below as Brian Blafield of Pavement Recycling Systems discusses the benefits of the WR 240i cold recycler and soil stabilizer or “The Pulverizer” and shares his unique experiences using this machinery on the golf course.

Summer Construction Update – May 20, 2024

2024-05-20T14:16:05-07:00May 20th, 2024|

May 20, 2024: Rams Hill Golf Club has been busy in the desert with the execution of the multi-million dollar conversion project to convert all fairways, tees, roughs, and surrounds to TifTuf bermudagrass. As of today, thirteen fairways (1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18) have been stripped and pulverized in preparation for hydroseeding. Before hydroseeding takes place, each bunker face will be sodded to maintain the shape of each bunker. The process of sodding and hydroseeding has begun on Hole 6.  What is hydroseeding?  Hydroseeding is a mixture of TifTuf bermudagrass stolons, fiber mulch, and fertilizer sprayed through a hose to encompass the entirety of each fairway, tee, rough, and surround. Once the hydroseeding is complete, the area must be watered thoroughly to promote growth. Listen below to Jimmy Foxx from American Sod [...]

Through meticulous planning, Rams Hill continues to strive for the future.
