Lakewood Country Club

Golf carts can play havoc on turfgrass, especially at the edges of paved cart paths. The wear and soil compaction have the combined effect of making it very difficult to maintain an aesthetically pleasing – or often even a sustainable – grass presence.

XtraGrass has proven to be a solid solution for this, and the images from Lakewood Country Club in Denver, Colorado tell the story.
