Abstract/Contents:"Between tee and green, areas of a clay loam texture with little fall (less than 3%) are prone to waterlogging at the soils surface during prolonged wet winter months. Close spaced drain lines with porous material to the surface do not readily remove surplus water between drains and - drains also have a tendency to become ineffective with covered grass growth and the eventual accumulation of silt and fine sand. In a comparative exercise, the landing area on a new golf course, prone to excessive surface waterlogging, was reshaped creating swales to lead accumulating surface water away from the playing area while still maintaining a pleasant undulating surface for golf. With the installation of the drains only in the swale inverts there was a considerable reduction in drainage installation. Total costs, which included the replacement of topsoil, soil preparation, seeding and sand dressing on either side of the drain lines, proved to be more economic and effective than installing a grid like system of close spaced drainage pipe lines."
