Verti-Drain and Top Dressing Schedule Change ~ September 14th

September 14, 2015 Dean Baker

We are Verti-draining the greens starting this morning and the weather is working in our favour for the next few days... sunny!!  The schedule change for verti-draining and topdressing greens was made due to heavy rains over the weekend.

The greens will need to dry out before we start topdressing. On Tuesday morning we will begin topdressing which will be another full day process. In order to keep us moving I am expecting temporary greens on Monday while we verti-drain and potentially a few on Tuesday considering the amount of sand we need to put down. Wednesday we will have sandy greens and hopefully rolling smoothly.
