Air2G2 Machine aids in renovation of Greens!
A new golfing Greens air renovator, similar to the one pictured below, has been in action at the Club.
Injecting a blast of high pressure air into the soil up to 300mm below the Green's surface to break up soil compaction has visited the Club.
Dispite some inital localised problems, all Greens were visited. The breakup of the compacted layers will assist in the absorbion of water, fertilisers and encourage grass growth to all Greens.
