Abstract/Contents:"As water has become more limited, irrigation requirements have become a focal point of golf turf management. The objective of this study is to evaluate two golf course putting green construction methods for playability, maintenance, and irrigation requirements. The experiment was conducted in summer 2023 at the Michigan State University Hancock Turfgrass Research Center. Six putting greens were constructed and seeded in June 2022 from sand conforming to USGA specifications. Three putting greens were constructed with variable depth rootzone and three were constructed with a capillary hydroponic system. A target volumetric water content of 8% was maintained in both treatments for the duration of the experiment. Flow meters were installed on the irrigation blocks and sub-ground irrigation systems to quantify irrigation requirements. The experimental design was a randomized complete block design with three replications. Volumetric water content was monitored continuously with in ground soil moisture sensors and across greens surfaces at two depths (7.5 cm and 20 cm) weekly with a handheld moisture meter. Surface firmness, and greens speed were measured twice monthly. Clipping yield was determined once per month."
