Abstract/Contents:"Given growing pressures on potable water, golf courses are increasingly being managed with low-quality irrigation water sources. Fairways represent the largest area of irrigated turf on a golf course, and management of these areas can become especially difficult where fine textured native soils become degraded due to high sodium levels in irrigation water. Common problems arising in these scenarios include excessive fairway wetness, very slow drainage, poor aeration, and severe compaction of highly trafficked areas, all of which result in poor quality turf. As golf courses increasingly depend on recycled water for irrigation, fairway sand-capping at construction or during renovation is occurring to a greater extent, especially throughout the desert southwest and southeastern U.S. regions. Recently, many studies have been conducted to evaluate the performance of sand-capped turf systems with regard to sand-capping depth, and the findings show that sand-capped systems are quite robust, behaving very differently than USGA putting greens (sand over gravel) systems, especially when the grasses receive recommended full irrigation level (60% x reference ET). However, to date, few have been done to evaluate tolerance of sand-capped fairways to deficit irrigation practices. Thus, the objectives of this study is to 1) Determine the relative and combined influences of subsoils, sand-capping depth, and wetting agent on ability of bermudagrass to tolerate summer deficit irrigation and simulated traffic, and 2) Evaluate fall recuperative potential of treatments plots once full irrigation levels are resumed. Over the first season of the study, capping depth and wetting agent have significantly influenced tolerance of bermudagrass to deficit irrigation treatments."
