Parkland Golf Course recently joined other courses in Greenwood County when it changed the method of maintaining its greens when owner Keith White decided to "paint" the greens instead of overseeding. Not only does it cut the cost, it also makes the putting surface more eye-catching to the player

"When you overseed, you have to cut the greens daily and keep water on them," said White, explaining a reason for his decision. "There is less maintenance and we can save a lot of money."

Even though some players, and workers, refer to it as "painting," White said, "It's actually a dye mixed with water. We first put it down in mid-October and we are planning to do them again somewhere around the middle of this month (January). That should do it until the grass starts growing again. The dye actually beautifies the grass that, right now, is in a dormant stage and looks brown. The color actually makes the greens look a lot better and reminds the player more of a putting surface with grass on it."

If you get a chance, get over to Parkland Golf Course and try out these new greens.  They are located at 295 Deadfall Road in Greenwood SC.  You can contact them at 864-229-5086.
