Deep tining greens
This week the agronomy staff will be deep tining greens. The purpose of deep tining greens is to improve drainage and increase oxygen levels within the root zone. A well drained, healthy root zone translates into a healthy, firm, and smooth putting surface.
As the summer gets hotter and we are forced to hand water more, we will be completing this process every 2-3 weeks to keep the greens profile draining and full of oxygen.
