“A golf course should be made interesting and a good test of golf by the tilt of the greens and the character of the undulations.”

Light Top-Dress

Today we lightly top-dressed the greens at Pasatiempo.  We top-dress every 14-21 days depending on the weather and golf schedule.  Light and frequent top-dressing helps reduce excess thatch.  Excess thatch will prevent water infiltration, reduce air movement through the profile and create an environment favorable for several fungal diseases.  Light and frequent top-dressing is one of the most important cultural practices on golf course greens.  The process is completed overnight with an additional irrigation of the greens.
