Venting and Topdressing of Putting Surfaces

Following the completion of the Met, timing with possible rain the grounds staff will be applying a light sand topdressing and spiking to aid in drying the surface and oxygen exchange within the root zone. We will be trying to target theses practices around the anticipated rain. Venting and topdressing do not impact putting quality, but help in smoothing and firming the surface.

 

Thank-you,

Pat O'Brien

Grounds Superintendent
