“Performance [of RTF sod] throughout the summertime has just been phenomenal. The amount of time we used to waste with guys watering bunker faces by hand…we just don’t have to do that anymore. It could be blistering hot and dry and we’re barely touching the bunker faces with the RTF.” 
- Jeff Corcoran, Oak Hill Country Club
