Golf course gets a new money-saving look

A golf course in Pueblo West is getting a new look, and it may have some golfers confused.

Desert Hawk Golf Course has quite a bit of dead grass right now, but that's because they are killing Bluegrass in the out-of-play areas on purpose.

They are reseeding these areas with fescue grass which will only have to be watered once a week at most, instead of everyday.

The new grass will both look good and be economical.

"It's hasn't cost us that much to do because we're doing it in house, but cost-wise, we're hoping to save $20,000 to $30,000 a year in water," said Mike Zaremba, Manager of Desert Hawk Golf Course. "Everybody is looking to save water."

This is only in the out-of-play areas and shouldn't affect golfers.

They hope the grass will be green by the end of July and be looking fuller by fall.
