Sod in Arizona Has Not Been Treated Well This Summer
This summer has been rough on sod in Arizona, especially on many of the golf courses in the Valley. With all of the crazy weather Arizona had this year it made it difficult for bermudagrass to grow in well, creating sub par greens. We are happy to know that summer is almost over and things are looking up for Arizona golf courses.
In order to get some of the Valley’s best golf courses ready for the fall Evergreen Turf is rolling out the green carpet for these courses. After the hard summer these courses have had we will be busy maintaining the greens and fairways to ensure they are up to par come fall. See our latest job at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain in Marana, Arizona home to Accenture Match Play Championships.
Evergreen Turf, Arizona’s premier sod producer is also working on TPC Scottsdale, Wildfire at Desert Ridge, Poston Butte (see image on right) and Gainey Ranch just to name a few. We have our freshest varieties of sod from our Arizona farms ready for all golf courses. We’ll be sodding and sprigging with some of our Arizona sod varieties such as TifGrand, Tifway, Tifgreen, MiniVerde, TifEagle and TifDwarf. Evergreen Turf isn’t the only one who has noticed how hard Arizona golf courses were hit this summer. The United States Golf Association (USGA) has also taken note of the huge difference Arizona golf courses have had transitioning this summer compared to last. Read more about the USGA’s take on the summer golf course sod in Arizona this year.
Evergreen Turf is looking forward to Valley residents and guests getting the chance to play on these golf courses once they are fresh and ready with some of our very own Arizona sod. Also we are looking forward to our Arizona Cardinal’s getting out on their field of our Arizona sod come fall, now that the NFL lock out is over!
