Chief Agronomist Andrew Johnston and the Agronomy Team at Sentosa engage in topdressing techniques.

Topdressing covers the crown of the plant and partially buries it protecting it from scalping by the mower blades. Topdressing the greens prevents most scalping of the leave blade, therefore preventing unwanted disease.

Sand helps to break down organic matter by increasing porosity and helping the soil breathe as well as continued removal of organic matter via aerification and continue topdressing to dilute the organic build up.

With the addition of sand, we have been able to firm up our greens and smooth the putting surface. Sand fills in slight imperfections to allow better ball roll and firms up the surface. Golfers feel that sand on the greens equals slow greens. In most cases, after a light dusting, the greens are slightly faster than before because a smoother surface is achieved.

The new extension of the black tee on the 5th hole could extend this to 499 yard par 4. The new tee is looking great!

its no secret that Pete and his team are the best in this country and perhaps in the region.

also not many people know that the tee-box runs close to 8 on the steep meter on tournament days and its faster than some of the greens at the courses here.

i only have one qualm and i hope it will not happen this year. it continue to rain at the BSO and its a shame cos with the prize money, we expect a better show and competition.

however the weather is not something that anyone can control and the schedule of the other tours meant that the BSO can only be held in those dates.

hope we get better weather this year....DGman
