Dry patch has become an issue on certain greens. This is the 13th green which has been badly affected. Dry patch coats the soil particles in a waxy material that makes them water repellent. We have opened up the dry spots with a small mini tine and applied wetting agent material through a hose end applicator. Blanket spraying with a retention wetting agent will be done this week to all greens to re-hydrate the dry soil. It has been very dry this month with only 12mm of rain recorded.
