What's been happening on the third green?
November 28, 2017
The first problem is that there was a constant wet patch because the drainage wasn't working properly
A secondary problem is that a number of our greens are "floating" on a bed of residual thatch.
The solution to both of these problems is drainage and aeration. Dryer root zones are warmer, encouraging root growth, and oxygen allows the thatch layer to break down.
Our air injector machine is in frequent use to encourage this process. If you want to see air injection in action, "Air2g2" on YouTube will oblige.
New drainage pipes have been put in place and connected to the system under the green.
The work in this area is nearing completion and the holes will be filled in and turfed over in the next few days, weather permitting.
