GREEN MAINTENANCE PROGRAMDue to our continuing philosophy here at Down Royal Park Golf Course of having full greens playable all year round, it is imperative that the various processes of our Greens Maintenance Program are carried out both from a horticultural and playability point of view. In order to gradually increase the pace of the greens, it is important to maintain the health of the grass so that it is in the best possible shape to withstand the wear and tear of a full golf season.Our key focus regarding the health of the grass is about finding the correct balance. A perfect blend of food, water, oxygen and sunlight. If the plant receives too much of any of these then it will have an adverse effect of the health of the plant.As greenkeepers we are constantly trying to strike the right balance of all four of the above elements but we are always battling against weather conditions. However, our aim is to give the plant the best possible chance with the tools at our disposal and in the environment that we are based.The most recent objective of the Greens Maintenance Program is to reduce the levels of ‘thatch’ that accumulate just under the surface of the greens. Thatch is produced naturally by the plant as it is either dead or dying grass that has either not been collected by grass boxes or simply dies off the plant and sits within the sward of the green. Thatch acts as a sponge and prevents water from draining down into the soil and therefore to the roots of the plant. … [Read more...] about VERTICUTTING PROCESS AT DOWN ROYAL PARK GOLF COURSE
