A light topdressing of the greens.....

 With the continued warm weather still present this week we were able to get another light topdressing and brush of the greens on Thursday. This will help even up some of the remaining holes from aerification and some of the numerous unfixed ball marks. It will also increase some firmness in the greens and continue to help with thatch dilution.
