Monday, April 11, 2022 by Tai Moses
Golf enthusiasts may know that golf course greens need renovating every 25-30 years “due to mutations in the grass, general contaminants in the soil and often unlevel surfaces,” according to the Parks and Recreation Department. The greens at Roy Kizer Golf Course, which was built in 1994, are due for a makeover “in order to return the surfaces to the proper United States Golf Association greens specifications.” The course closes today, April 11, with an expected (though weather-dependent) reopening on Aug. 1. The parks department explains that the project will done in two phases. In phase one, contaminants are removed and new grass sprigs are planted, while phase two consists of “the grow-in process and turf grooming for reopening.” During the closure, golfers may still get their tee time in at the Golf Division‘s other courses – Jimmy Clay, Morris Williams, Lions Municipal, Hancock, and Grey Rock golf courses and Butler Pitch and Putt.
