Abstract/Contents:Discusses efforts to restore a golf course on Wilmington Island in Savannah, Georgia, in September 1935. States that "the first job, upon locating each green, was to get it in shape for seeding. After the rough job of clearing off the growth was done, all the roots were dug out and the greens resurfaced." Explains that "all vegetation when cut was burned from day to day as it dried out fast under the hot sun. As soon as a fairway surface was cleared, all possible roots dug out, and rubbish burned, it was disked and cross disked, then follwed with a spike-tooth harrow." States that "Italian ryegrass was sown, as in the case of the greens, and the fairways rolled to encourage quick germination."
