Today we topdressed the North greens.

Topdressing with sand is the most effective means of diluting thatch on putting surfaces. There are additional benefits:
  • smooths the putting surface
  • helps eliminate or minimize "grain"
  • provides a firmer surface
Light and frequent topdressing is preferred as long as there is access to the golf course to get it done. We avoid topdressing on days when the temperatures are in the high 80's or low 90's due to the abrasive stress on the turf.
