Course Projects & Improvements

Work has started and we won't ever stop improving!

Here is a list of upcoming course improvements needed to turn Seven Hills around and become the best conditioned and played course in the area.  I hope this gives you an idea of how hard we are working to improve the course after years and years of neglect.

Thank you so much,
Seven Hills Golfers Club Staff


Verticutting

Verticutting

We started Double Verticuting the greens the first week after acquiring the course. Our plan is to do this every 2 weeks until the thatch is controlled.

What is verticutting?
Verticutting, or vertical mowing, removes thatch buildup in the lawn so turf can breathe easy, better absorb nutrients, and soak in much-needed moisture. Thatch is a layer of dead stems and roots that forms between the grass and soil.

Insects and Weeds

Insects and Weeds

Spraying of insecticide and herbicides as already been applied we have sprayed for ants, fleas, ticks, grubs and molecrickets. Herbicide has been applied to all tees and a second application is upcoming.

Dead Trees

Dead Trees

We just completed a tree analysis by the Davey Tree Company, they determined there are 127 dead trees on the course which will require removal. This will be an ongoing program and removal will take place over many years.

Irrigation

Irrigation

Irrigation evaluation has been completed and many repairs need to be made before winter over-seeding can be started. We are currently working on fixing these issues as quickly as possible. Heads need to be adjusted for GPM, circumference and watering times.

Overseeding

Overseeding

Overseeding of tees, fairways and greens will be done in late October early November depending on temperatures.

What is golf overseeding?
In golf, "overseeding" refers to a maintenance process on golf courses in which grass seed is spread on top of the existing grass to promote new growth or to swap out seasonal turfs, replacing one type of grass with another. Overseeding thus keeps a living, growing turfgrass available for golfers to play on

Clubhouse Curb Appeal

Clubhouse Curb Appeal

Major outside renovation to clubhouse exterior and interior to improve the curb appeal and create an inviting restaurant/bar atmosphere for golfers and their families. We have already started on the landscape removing bushes and spraying weeds. We anticipate a whole new paint color to match the upcoming restaurant/bar.

Topdressing/Enlarging Green Sizes

Topdressing/Enlarging Green Sizes

We will be starting a regular top dressing program very soon, this needs to be done before and during overseeding.

What is topdressing?
Topdressing is the application of a thin layer of soil or prepared soil mixture to a turfgrass area. Top-dressing is used to smooth and level the putting surface and/or modify the soil condition under the turf when used in conjunction with coring. It is an excellent practice in restoring turf quality.
