Abstract/Contents:Suggests that "on golf courses which are not fortunate in having a water supply to the greens and are situated in districts which have a fair annual rainfall, it is possible to keep greens up to a good standard practically all year round." Addresses proper soil choice and drainage techniques for a course with generally dry conditions. States that "it is essential to plant the new green in the spring months." Provides recommendations for planting time and topdressing practices. Mentions that "bone dust is a very valuable fertiliser [fertilizer] on dry courses on account of the large quantity of organic matter it contains. Bone dust has a lasting effect on the growth of the turf."
