Approach Topdressing

During our annual August fairway aerification, we treat the approaches differently than the rest of the fairway.  On most of the fairway acreage, the aerification plugs are chopped  and dragged to separate the soil from the thatch.  The thatch is then collected and removed, while the soil is dragged back into the holes.

However, on the approaches, the whole aerification plug is picked up and removed.  The approach is then topdressed with sand, which is broomed into the holes.  The long-term goal of this process is to help in firming up the approaches.

Sand is being applied to #2 approach.
