Abstract/Contents:"The soil mixture is important to the ultimate welfare of the putting green because it must be of such a nature that it will drain quickly, that it will resist compaction, and that it will be resilient enough to hold a properly played shot and yet not so spongy that it will hold a shot played poorly. The surface of the putting green should resist deep pitting when balls are played to it. Moisture content of the soil as well as the amount of turf present affects the type of putting that will occur."
