Recycled has a good idea. Kill it, level it and and slit seed--maybe with a bit of aeration and broadcast seed for reinforcement.
Is this irrigated? If not--forget it.
I think the best bang for the buck--install irrigation, kill it, mow short as possible, fix rough spots, resod over whatever remains.
Don't lay the sod yourself--get big-roll sod. Sod farm lays 200 foot rolls 4 feet wide with a tractor. Goes quick.
