Edwalton October Newsletter
Welcome to our October newsletter updating you on what’s happening at Edwalton Golf Centre.
Our Greens hollow coring was completed at the end of last month and has gone so well you may not even be able to notice that it has been done if you looked now. This work is a key part of our commitment to making our greens as good as we can make them. We are often asked why it is done so a brief explanation below,
Why is it done?
Course traffic causes the ground to become compacted and hardened. This means drainage is less efficient and the grass’s roots are prevented from absorbing oxygen. Hollow tining allows the compacted turf to expand and air and moisture to be more easily absorbed. The coring helps address the problem of thatch. (Thatch is a layer of grass stems, roots, and debris that settle and accumulate over time.) A thin layer is acceptable but too much thatch will hold water like a sponge. Tining also removes accumulated fibre in the grass root zone.
It allows for the exchange of a poor soil for a better one through top dressing. That’s why the greens are normally covered in sandy top dressing immediately after they’re cored. In addition, coring allows for overseeding: another effective way of improving the quality of the playing surface.
