The grass is greener at Ocala Golf Club.
The widely popular course – best known as “Muni” among its loyal golfers – held a ribbon cutting ceremony this past weekend to celebrate amazing renovations.
Part of the Florida Historic Golf Trail, all 18 greens at Ocala Golf Club have been converted to TifEagle Bermuda grass to provide even smoother putting surfaces year round. This hearty strain of grass is the preferred choice of many superintendents for its quick recovery time, superior color retention, consistent seasonal playability and high drought resistance.
Ocala Golf Club joins scores of high-end courses making the switch to TifEagle Bermuda including Harbor Town Golf Links, Trump International Golf Club and TPC Sawgrass, host of THE PLAYERS Championship.
“Our team is very proud of the work done at Ocala Golf Club,” says Jason Lenhart, General Manager of Ocala Golf Club. “Here’s to the historic fairways and greens continuing to be the site of lasting family memories for generations to come.”
But the work didn’t stop there; a new acid injection system designed to better control the PH levels and maintain the greens throughout the year was also installed during the 14-week project. Additionally, all 34 bunkers were restored to their original design while new draining patterns and pristine white sand have increased playability and overall appeal.
Beginning today, Ocala Golf Club is offering reduced rates for local golfers to come out and experience the many enhancements to their beloved track.
