They are not weed free...but the ever thickening bent grass is choking out the weeds slowly. The frost should kill off the annnual weeds. Some greens are infested with clover and black medic, which are really persistent. i spent a lot of time hand pulling weeds this season...not much fun, but persistence will pay off in the long run...

I overseeded all the greens two weeks ago, and just saw some sprouts coming up today...once that bent takes over there will be no room for weeds.

Green,

good one..hee hee

This course is a pitch and putt, holes range from 60 yards to 120 yards...greens range from 600sqft to about 1700 sqft. It is a private course on a local guys land. He chose the pins. I intend on picking up some 'real' cups and flags soon.

I look after another course about the same size too.
