Abstract/Contents:Presents a progress report on experimental greens that were constructed at the Rincon Vista Turfgrass Research Area in Tucson, Arizona during 1970. Details the process of constructing the greens, noting that "over the fill was placed a four-inch layer of 3/8-inch washed pea gravel. Over this was placed a four-inch layer of washed concrete sand and over this layer was placed a final seven-inch layer of mix." Provides two tables that list particle size distribution measurements and chemical analyses of materials used during the construction process. Notes sources of funding the greens' construction and maintenance. Provides a map of the area that includes roads, fences, gates, fields, and green locations.
