Representatives of National Golf Management have announced the reopening of Meadowlands Golf Club after a three-month renovation. Meadowlands is one of 22 Prime Times Signature Courses owned or managed by the company.
In about 100 days, the maintenance staff at Meadowlands Golf Club, led by superintendent David Pridgen, converted the TifDwarf Bermuda greens to a more advanced TifEagle variety of the grass, which thrives in warm climates.
“TifEagle will provide a faster surface and will not have the contamination or mutation that the TifDwarf greens had, which is a function of age,” said Max Morgan, National Golf Management vice president of agronomy. “The new greens will also not require overseeding,” which makes for year-round consistency that golfers look for.
New grass for the putting surfaces was not the only positive change that has taken place at Meadowlands this summer. Ricky Lyons, head professional, explained that two holes on the front nine underwent changes in contouring aimed at better playability and more enjoyment of players’ rounds.
“We removed a large mound that obscured the view of the sixth green from the landing area and lowered that fairway by about four feet,” Lyons said. “We then used the removed dirt from that project and used it to extend the landing area on our third hole by about 30 yards. Now, golfers who were forced to lay up by the pond on that hole will have the opportunity to get closer to the green with their tee shots.”
“We could not be happier with how this greens conversion and renovation has turned out,” said W.J. McLamb, president of Meadowlands Golf Club. “We’re grateful for Max Morgan’s guidance and expertise and to the entire National Golf Management team for their support throughout this project. The golf course is in phenomenal shape.
