Abstract/Contents:"The term divot refers to a patch of turfgrass that is removed when a golf swing is made. Depending on time of year, divot recovery can take several weeks. Unrepaired, those sunken bare-areas are unsightly. and each divot has the potential to negatively affect playability given the USGA's "Ball played as it lies." rule. Historically, sand-alone was used to fill divots. Newer "divot mixes" are now being used, but comparative data is often lacking. In 2022-23, a small-plot field study was conducted on a 'HGT' Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.) tee at the Bob Berry Sunshine Course in Lemont, Illinois. The objectives were: 1) Evaluate various divot mixes with and without seed for speedy turfgrass recovery, and 2) to better understand the influence of season (spring, summer, and fall) on divot repair. Field plots were arranged as a RCBD with four replications of seven treatments. Three individual studies were conducted in each of three seasons. At the start of each, divots were created artificially with a modified cup cutter. Weekly, data was collected to monitor multiple aspects of turfgrass recovery. Compared to sand-alone, newer divot mixes provided faster divot recovery in a Kentucky bluegrass tee. The addition of 'Leeward' Chewings fescue seed had the greatest effect in speeding recovery. Divot media choice (sand, compost or 8-1-1 mix) was influenced, at times, by season. For example, the 8-1-1 mix plus seed did not perform well in summer. Given treatments containing seed, compost was most consistent across all three seasons to 50% recovery in 3-4 weeks, versus sand in 4-5 weeks, versus 8-1-1 mix in 3-11 weeks."
