Teeing surfaces may be one of the more overlooked features on a golf course. Starting a hole on an uneven, wrongly sloped, or misaligned surface gives players a bad impression. Whether you have sand capped teeing surfaces or native soil, Reliable can re-construct your uneven or misaligned tees to make your golf holes feel and play their best. In a short amount of time we strip the existing surface, re-shape or build a new level and properly sloped teeing surface, then seed or sod the new tee. We use laser levels to ensure the tees we construct are graded properly, as is the industry standard.
Forward tees are a popular growing trend on golf courses to make holes more playable for golfers of all ability levels. Reliable, in collaboration with a course architect, can give your course the versatility players are now demanding. Having fun is about scoring well and the forward tee movement gives more players the chance to enjoy and have fun on your course. Give us a call to discuss the possibility of creating forward tees on your course that will attract golfers and help grow the game.
Drainage can make a huge impact on the playability of your course. Water that won’t drain after a rain event can lead to prolonged hole closures, longer cart restrictions, and unplayable areas or dead turf. Areas that hold water often experience seasonal turf loss and consequent re-population with less than desirable turf varieties like Poa Annua. Reliable can design and install drainage solutions to get your course playable sooner. Give us a call to discuss your drainage problems and to see how Reliable can provide a solution.

Greens with severe slopes can greatly limit the amount of playable area and area where a cup can be placed. By lessening the slope on part of the green you can greatly increase the pin-able area. Often times, changing the contour of the surface of a green a couple of inches can make a huge difference in playability. Many older greens were originally designed to be played at a lesser speed than what it is currently being maintained at today and the slopes are simply too much for today’s speeds. Reliable’s crew can remove your existing green’s surface, make the necessary adjustments to lessen the slope and increase the puttable area, then replace the original sod, leaving you with a green that’s more playable and more enjoyable for your golfers.
Sand bunkers are probably the most controversial features on a golf course. Bunkers that lack proper drainage or that are contaminated after multiple years of washouts can be an eyesore requiring many hours of work after every rain to get the water out and the sand playable. Reliable Golf Services can help! Most courses can’t afford an entire course bunker renovation, but can afford to redo one or two bunkers a year. We would be happy to discuss with you what your bunker issues are and help come up with a solution that is affordable to tackle the bunker issues you get the most complaints about.
Reliable can provide complete bunker reconstruction and re-shaping, or complete removal. The most cost effective fix is to simply get the contaminated sand out, make sure the drainage is working, and put new sand back in. More long term fixes include reshaping and/or installing a liner, but are more expensive. Simple drainage fixes and new sand can make a big impact on your golfers with a relatively small impact on your budget. Don’t let poorly performing bunkers be high on your complaint list, start doing something about it today by giving Reliable Golf Services a call to have us come out and give you a free site inspection and quote.
