To create hard, fast links fairways we need to tighten up the top 20mm.Top dressing with sand will have this effect and encourage finer grasses,” explains James.“We decided last year to mine sand from a somewhat unremarkable area of grassland behind one of our tees to create a wetland habitat for wildlife and to save bringing in large quantities of sand at around £45 per tonne,” he continues.The DS3800 has transformed the job, saving a lot of back-breaking effort and shaving around two hours off the process.The Rink DS3800 broadcast top dresser, manufactured in Germany and distributed in the UK by Charterhouse, has dual spinners producing a spreading width of up to 12m.Its supreme versatility makes it a weapon that Matt is very happy to have in his armoury with the flexibility to power a variety of hard working implements including a deep tine aerator, as well as potentially a seeder, verti-cutter and more. He has worked at the club for 19 years and sees the Tool Carrier with Verti-Drain 1513 fitted as key in his drive to ensure that the course remains at the forefront in an area of the Thames Valley that provides much high level competition.Built in 1895, the 18-hole par 71 course sits high on the glorious downland of West Berkshire and looks out over Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and beyond.
As this is the last year for us in the rota to host the Open qualifier, the club could accommodate another tournament next year.
“But it’s not like that any more – you don’t have to pay joining fees and many golfers simply want to be able to play at all times of the year.
You have to provide that if you want to compete.”“On a course like this one that has a series of old push-up greens over solid clay down to 20 metres, you have got to have the tools to drain it properly if you want to be able to offer all-year golf.”In days gone by, the course would not have hollow tined in March and scarified in April, but that is now the right approach for a course that has some 750 members and hosts 75,000 rounds in typical year.
The previous aeration routine involved a tractor-mounted machine to hollow tine greens and tees in April and September, and then pencil tining between four and eight times a year on the greens and once on the tees.
That meant increasingly costly wear and tear on the tractor which was itself applying unwanted compaction to the playing surfaces.
