Profile of the greens.

Over the next couple of days I will be inspecting the greens soil profile for thatch build up and consistency. I have already made plans to carry out the same work as we did in the spring renovation. The idea is to achieve consistency over all 20 greens and this can only be achieved by treating them differently as they all behave in different ways. Throughout the year all the greens receive different quantities of fertiliser’s and topdressing so the consistency can be achieved, if you get this wrong then the greens will be noticeable different in there performance ie green speed, firmness and roll. Next week we may alter the depth we hollow tine which depends on the depth of thatch/fibre we have accumulated.
