Golf Course Natural Areas

Vegetation and the landscape significantly influence the golf experience. We have worked with a number of Metro area facilities to enhance the natural elements of courses through creating Minnesota native pond and wetland buffers, prairies, and oak savannas. We very much enjoy the opportunity of melding high quality natural areas with playability. We consider course layout, aesthetics, traffic patterns, and long-term maintenance objectives. We are golfers, appreciate the game, and respect the challenges that managers, pros, and superintendents face. We can transform no-play turf or weedy brome areas into prairie patches that will look terrific, create important habitat, and eliminate watering, fertilizer, and pesticide use. Turf to the water’s edge can be thoughtfully restored to short, natural buffer strips. Deep rooted natives will add visual interest, combat muskrat damage, and hold soil in place. A narrow buffer can be stunning and will not significantly alter course play. We look forward to meeting with you to discuss your ideas and share our expertise.

I’m very pleased with our natural areas-the visual appeal, function,and how they add to the overall golf experience. Bill has been a real pleasure to work with.
