The main objectives were to reduce organic matter levels, increase sand inputs and overseed with pure bent.
Managing thatch levels is one of the most important tasks to be able to maintain a healthy playing surface. Thatch is a build up of grass clippings, dead leaves, pine needles and other organic matter that sits just below the surface of turfgrass. Applying sand helps to dilute thatch levels. Pure bent seed aids recovery.
Here is a short video of the graden in operation.
Cutting heights will be determined by sand movement and the recovery rate of the greens.
We expect to see full recovery within 2 too 3 weeks.
A light topdressing may be applied to level the surface if required.
