Benefits of the Bermuda Grass Renovation
- More sustainable and environmentally friendly golf turf
- Less pesticide and fertilizer applications
- Latest and greatest golfing turf in the Mid-Atlantic region
- Improved course conditions and playing surface during peak times
- Fewer resources such as water, gas, and electricity are needed to maintain the course
Why Close Down?
Growing Bermuda Grass and ensuring proper soil adhesion is necessary during the hottest months to enable the grass to spread and grow quickly.

Update – 6/9/2022
Enterprise Golf Course has made significant progress over the past couple of weeks. We are happy to report that all fairways have been sprigged with Bermuda, and the majority of our tees have been laser-leveled. Next week continues our course renovation progress as we plan to Dry-Ject our greens. Shortly after we will be sodding around greens and approaches. Enterprise Golf Course is still on track to reopen in late July. Please stay tuned for more information regarding our Grand Re-Opening!
Update - 5/24/2022
Enterprise Golf Course will be closed to the public beginning Friday, May 27th until we reopen on our current predicted date of August 1, 2022. Enterprise Golf Course wants to thank all our members and guests for the overwhelming support for our upcoming tee and fairway renovation. We have already made significant progress, and we are excited to have elevated products and services for all our players and residents when we reopen.
Update - 5/18/2022
One of the key elements of healthy turf is oxygen. As turf managers, we need to aerate the greens from time to time to help maintain them and support the grass plant. This past Monday and Tuesday, Enterprise Golf Course aerified all of our greens. This process is typically done earlier in the golfing season. However, we did it this week as we wanted to give our players the best putting surface possible leading up to our renovation. During the renovation closure, we are excited to be adding another process to improve our greens called hydrojecting. Hydrojecting utilizes our irrigation water and shoots high-pressure streams of water deep into the greens sub-surface. Doing this breaks up sublayer soil and allows the turf to breathe better. We are always looking for minimal disruption to playing conditions with maximum benefit for the plant's health. This is a great example of that and highlights the benefit of advanced technology in the golf industry.
Update - 5/13/2022
This past Monday, we sprayed all our fairways to begin removing all current turf. We are doing this in preparation for the Bermuda Sprigging that will start in the coming weeks. In addition, this week we plan to continue our tee renovation by laser grading.
