Abstract/Contents:SUMMARY: "The first golf course in Sweden was built in 1891. The development of the sport was very slow in early years, but recently it has grown tremendously. Interest in, the knowledge of, green construction has followed this development. For many decades greens were constructed on existing topsoil, and seeded with "Highland" bent and creeping red fescue. Only in the early sixties was more attention paid to special green constructions and seeding. The influence of the USA is clear. The recommended construction method today is a sandy rootzone on a drainage layer of sand and gravel. The material for the rootzone should fulfil the following requirements: 100% < 1.0 mm, 35% < 0.5 mm, 25% < 0.25 mm, < 8% < 0.10 mm, < 3% < 0.05 mm. The seed can be either 100% Agrostis stolonifera or 95% Festuca ubra commutata spp. and 5% Agrostis tenuis. In northern localities Poa annua may be used sometimes."
