USGA Summary Points:Increased clay content (5% greater) at Rawls Course significantly increased recovery time from cultivation practices, especially core aerification, which resulted in poor above ground characteristics. Relative soil moisture at 1.5 inch (3.8 cm) depth was significantly reduced throughout the summer 2015 and 2016 at Meadowbrook with core aerification. Core aerification decreased ratio vegetation index (RVI) throughout summer at Rawls Course, but cultivated practices provided significantly better RVI at Meadowbrook late in the summer. The granular gypsum and verde-cal G applications reduced soil pH in October at both golf courses with Meadowbrook maintaining significantly lower pH than other treatments. The same granular treatments (gypsum and verde-cal G) significantly increased soil EC levels at Meadowbrook in August and October, but no significant differences were observed at Rawls Golf Course in 2016.
