Putting surfaces are very pleasing for the time of year. Testing has been carried out early this week on firmness, moisture and smoothness. The greens are 15% firmer than this time last year. This is due to the sand applications last season. 

Moisture content in the surface inch has been reduced considerably and this contributes to healthy turf, especially in winter months as the crown of the turf remains dry.

Moisture content of the top 3″ has been reduced slightly but this will improve in time as we build a sand layer and integrate more sand into the existing rootzone.
