Verticutting Greens for Ball Speed

Submitted by LRCC Golf Course Superintendent, Logan Nesbitt

Welcome back members!  I hope each of you enjoyed the long frigid winter months.  My staff did wonderful projects this winter, but preparing the golf course for you all is our passion.  One of the most recent practices that we have performed, is verticutting the greens.  The verticutting process has many benefits:  correcting the density of the turf, water infiltration, removing poa annua seed heads, removing thatch, and standing the leaf blade upright for ball speed.  We performed this process on Wednesday, May 14,   in preparation for the 2-day Member-Member tournament and we gained significant speeds and a much smoother ball roll!  Please feel free to contact me with any thoughts that you may have.  May God bless you and your family this Memorial day!
