Sprigger Sprigging!

The golf course was ready for a change, and I’m ready for a change. Today is the last piece of equipment I may show for a bit. The golf course’s change is that it now a few holes have been planted with grass – it has been a long wet summer.

The above picture is of a sprigger. Underneath is a roller and small disc – it smoothes the soil and cuts in the sprigs. Sprigs are small chopped up pieces of grass – in our case Bermuda. It is planted vegetatively as it is a hybrid without seeds. It grows laterally and should root in a week or two and will spread like wildfire in our current conditions. The above portion is somewhat obvious – a cage where the crew feeds the sprigs in the hopper and hand tops small hard to get areas.
