Course Activity

Edging and removing Bermuda grass runners from the greens edge

Using rotary spreaders to apply a light sand dressing. This practice helps to achieve a smoother putting surface along with decreasing thatch (the spongy feel under your feet).  This rate is considerably lighter than the rate we use during peak bent grass growing season which is during the fall and spring. This rate uses about 3 tons of sand.  During peak growing months I Prefer the apply approximately 10 tons on a two or three week time frame

Another look at topdressing

Adding compost to thin areas mainly in the fairways.  This will help produce a better soil in these compacted areas
