We started with the greens on Sunday afternoon.
First, we break up the plugs by dragging a mat across them, then blow the thatch into the center.
Back to Greens: On greens we pick up the plugs and compost them. We then top-dress to fill the holes. This removes the excess thatch and adds sand that resists compaction and allows for good drainage.
A final brush and roll finishes the process. By that time things are getting on the dry side so a couple of turns with the sprinklers is just what is needed.
All in all it went very well. In a couple of short weeks we will be back to normal. Ready for our big MEMBER - MEMBER tournament.
