My quick and simple answer is this; the soil used to construct the top two inches of that putting green is to put it mildly, very poor. So poor in fact that I don't care to move it to out onto the course creating a second more visible problem for myself.
|Large area of hydrophobic soil.|
|This green would look this way after a weeks worth of steady day long rains as the soil rejects water.|
So naturally, I didn't want to give you a putting surfaces on the course with patches of hydrophobic mottled looking weakened turf.
It is our plan to rebuild this green once the club climbs out of this recession. _Mk
