Abstract/Contents:"Inadequate removal of excess rainwater may hinder and restrict sporting activity on grass sports fields. When this is caused by a compact and impermeable layer in the soil profile, sub-surface cultivation may offer a solution. For this purpose several machines are available. To evaluate them, a trial was laid down on a sports field prone to waterlogging, where measurement of the mechanical resistance of the soil found a compacted solid layer. Relief of this compaction was thought likely to the useful, and three machines were used, the 'Verti-Drain', a subsoil cultivator and a deep-aerating vibratory rotavator. It was surprising to find that the machines did not obviously improve permeability and that the problem of water removal was not solved, despite the fact that these problems were caused not so much by a compact impermeable layer as by limited capillary contact between the different soil layers or by enclosed air. These results show that very complete investigations are required prior to sub-surface cultivation."

"Jolanda Vonder, greenkeeper op Hooge Graven G&CC te Ommen, noemt ze steevast 'de meiden van de greenkeeping'. Op 3 oktober jl. werden ze voor de derde maal uitgenodigd voor het jaarlijkse potje golf. Er werd gezellig gegolfd op een prachtige nazomerse middag op de 18 holes van de baan waar Peter Schalk de scepter over het groen zwaait: De Goyer G&CC. Vakblad Greenkeeper mocht er - bij hoge uitzondering - bij zijn. Want we willen wel eens kennismaken met al die vrolijke, vrouwelijke greenkeepers om ze ook aan jullie voor te stellen. Om 13.56 uur was de tee-off voor de drie flights. Uiteindelijk werd Jamie Bijl winnares. Zij sloeg ook de neary, terwijl Debbie van Tongeren voor de longest drive tekende."
