It has been a wet, cool fall and winter period in the Southeast generally. The Farmer’s Almanac http://www.almanac.com/ predicts this again for next fall in the region. As a result bermudagrass putting surfaces on pushup green subsoils are struggling to breathe, especially this time of year.
As you can see by the picture, this club had recently regrassed to Jones Ultradwarf bermuda, and they regretted not installing drainage during that time, as the greens will stay too wet to manage a reasonable putting surface for the significant play they receive. But, XGD Systems was able to aid in rescuing these greens, essentially playing a part in rebuilding the greens without the messy construction part. It is noteworthy that is during this time of year, clubs which do not choose to overseed or paint, and have a nice stand of dormant bermuda, these clubs will struggle to keep the putting surfaces in a playable condition for their clientele.
Please drop us a line, if we may be able to help you and your club out.
Cheers, Poor Old Dirt & Grass Farmer
