Barefoot Resort & Golf is continuing to improve its already impressive multi-course facility, by moving forward in 2012 and converting the remaining two courses. In 2011 we underwent green renovations to both the Fazio and Norman courses. With rave reviews, management has decided to complete the process and convert the remaining two courses (Dye,Love) this upcoming summer. The Dye Course will be closed starting May 21st and reopen by July 16th.
In case you are unfamiliar with our renovation, we are converting our greens from Bentgrass to Champion UltraDwarf. The company that is in charge of conducting the renovation is Champion Turf Farms founded by Morris Brown. The process used for the conversion is called No-Till Renovation. No-Till Renovation™ is the process of changing the grass variety on a putting green without reconstructing the existing surface. The end result of the process is that the green contours are exactly as they were before, but with a uniform, 100% stand of Champion. The resulting putting surface is dramatically improved by the inherent characteristics of Champion because Champion provides the best ball roll of any bermudagrass cultivar. To learn more about this process visit: Champion Turf Farms- No Till Renovation. During last year’s renovations on the Fazio Course, we compiled a time lapse video from start to finish. If you are interested in the process head on over to our YouTube Channel: Fazio Restoration.
During the course closure the Dye Clubhouse and Pro Shop will remain open to the general public and its guests.
