Today we started to verti-drain the greens with 12mm solid tines going to a depth of 250mm. The greens were dressed with sand and drag matted prior to the tining work. The tines will carry some of the sand into the profile but more importantly relieve some compaction that exists around the 200mm mark. We will do 7 greens this week and then the remainder next week so that the whole course is not affected. The greens were rolled with the turf iron afterwards to smooth the surface. We have done the older greens from 6-11 & the putting green first.
