Refining green section specifications for putting green construction

  1. A.M. Radko

Abstract

The U. S. Golf Association Green Section specifications for a method of putting green construction was first published in 1960. It was a departure from the norm in that it advocated use of a perched water table to insure a continuous supply of water and a physical analysis of the topsoil mixture with a specified micropore and macropore space capacity. The 1973 refinement adheres to these original specifications but offers several minor changes that combine the practical and scientific for ease of construction. Additional index words: Perched water, Topsoil mixture, Micropore space, Macropore space.
