USGA Summary Points:Topdressing improved the turf quality of the putting surface, reduced the OM concentration of the mat layer, and frequently produced a drier surface compared to nontopdressed plots. Medium-fine sand increased the fineness of sand within the mat layer, but this did not appear to influence volumetric water content compared to medium-coarse sand. Medium-coarse and medium-fine sand topdressing were similarly effective at reducing surface wetness. Fine-medium sand topdressing was not as effective at drying the surface due to the substantial increase in fine and very fine particles within the mat layer. Core cultivation and backfilling with medium-coarse sand was effective at reducing surface wetness and OM concentration as well as reducing the fineness of sand within the mat layer of medium-fine and fine-medium topdressed plots.
