What McMurray did not expect, however, were some of the challenges inherent with the natural environment (including a protected bat species roosting in the mature trees surrounding the course!).
After creating a course layout that would minimize environmental disruption, McMurray brought Profile Products to the table to tackle something even further from his control: the dry climate in the region. McMurray leaned on Profile for the company’s agronomic expertise along with its line of inorganic soil amendments that could provide a consistent, reliable, and long-lasting rootzone mix for the greens.
Profile Porous Ceramics were blended with local sands and used across all of the course’s greens, resulting in well-developed rooting, and a balance of moisture and air porosity a year after opening.
