One of the miscellaneous projects that had been on my list for a few weeks was renovating the area between the cart path and the green on #13. This area had been worn down due to foot and cart traffic and was in need of attention. We added sod to this area and a mulch pathway to focus the foot traffic approaching the green.

In order to keep the thatch from accumulating, we periodically vertical mow and lightly topdress the greens with sand. The vertical mower is similar to power raking your yard and it allows us to remove some of the excess thatch without interfering with playing conditions. The sand is dusted onto the green to dilute the thatch further and to smooth out the surface.
