Grooming/vertical mowing and smoothing greens

On Monday, we took the opportunity to give the greens a light verticutting/grooming a few weeks before the member guest.  We topdressed the greens, brushed them with our cocoa mat and mowed them.  This should help improve ball roll and smoothness.  We will probably topdress again next week about 10 days out from the Invitational to insure the greens are at their best for our upcoming event.

Why its called vertical mowing, blades are 3/4" apart and are up and down.

Skip topdressing 2 green.
