Construction Mixes That Make Golf Courses Great

Thursday, October 1, 2015

Golfers understand the importance of a properly constructed golf course that provides a firm and uniform surface for putting. The quality of the golf course will make a difference in whether golfers return again or look elsewhere to play the beloved sport. Great golf course aggregates will resist compaction from foot traffic and mowing, allow water and air infiltration, retain nutrients, and hold the right amount of moisture.

Root Zone Construction Mix

A mixture of sand and other materials is the preferred mixture for the root zone layer on the golf course. Sand works well with bentgrass greens because it resists compaction and has a high air infiltration rate. Mixing the sand with peat increases retention of water and nutrients. Since peat is organic and will eventually break down, other inorganic materials are sometimes added to the mix to increase water and nutrient retention.
