During the last maintenance week, we have implemented another procedure to our regular program. Before a deep aeration and a heavy sand topdress operation, a 2 cm verticut and a dry sand fill program were carried out. The new GKB Sand-Filler is used to do this operation.
This is a quite aggressive and precise procedure but needed if we wish to maintain having the best greens possible. Unfortunately, a malfunction in the adjustment of the blades made minor damage on greens 1 and 9. Grass were scalped, but, since the crown and root system of the plant were not damaged, it will grow back in three weeks. Extra care will promote fast recovery of these patches. The maintenance team readjusted the equipment, so no further damages occurred.
