The place to get a behind-the-scenes look at grounds maintenance at Bailey Ranch Golf Club

We are taking the opportunity this morning while we are closed to topdress greens. I like to refer to this type of an application as a "dusting" because we are adding a very thin layer of sand that can be worked into the canopy with a few minutes of irrigation. We do this weekly to ensure to accomplish several things: smoother, firmer greens and to dilute the organic matter that is in the root zone. Frequent, light applications of sand, such as this, improves ball roll and overall firmness of the greens.
