Sand Topdressing and Venting

Over the past two days the Ground’s Staff has been busy with sand topdressing and venting of the putting surfaces. The latest topdressing rate was increased to make up for the increased growth due to the fertilizer application of Ammonium sulfate and Manganese along with the above normal precipitation in June. The mowing height will be adjusted to match the increase in sand and the ball roll distance will be reduced until the sand disappears into the canopy. The venting of the greens allows them to dry out faster and improve air exchange with the rootzone to improve plant health for the upcoming stressful months.
