Many of you may have noticed brown spots in the fairways and the rough. These brown areas are dying kyllinga. Kyllinga is a very invasive weed that is part of the sedge family and until a few years ago, was extremely difficult to remove. With today's herbicide technology, kyllinga is not that hard to get rid of, however the herbicides do discolor the turf. While the discolored turf is a bit unsightly, it is short lived and the turf regains its color after a week. Unfortunately there is no way around the discoloration.
