other interesting bullets
Other Interesting Bullets
  • The irrigation is the most important and most difficult part of managing grass.
  • People are the most challenging and rewarding part of managing the golf course.
  • The greens are the most expensive part of the course to maintain per square foot.
  • The bunkers are the second most expensive part of the course to maintain per square foot.
  • The primary benefit of aeration is compaction relief. This then allows better air and water movement.
  • Topdressing smoothes the playing surface and provides temporary relief to the high pH caused by the water.
