Golf Tees: Tees should always be designed so they can be maintained easily with reasonably sized equipment. Keeping a tee in good condition requires constant remedial work which can result in excessive wear. Therefore, the larger the tee, the less the effect of wear will be.
Regular scarification and aeration is important, as too is the application of fertiliser during the summer to ensure strong growth during this period. While mowing should be carried out regularly, care should be taken not to cut below about 12mm, leaving as much cover as possible on the tee to assist with wear. Weekly devoting and repair work should be carried out to restore the surface and to reintroduce the desirable grasses. The following tees mixture is recommended:

Regular mowing should be carried out on the fairways although this can take a considerable amount of time during the summer months. Fortunately, modern short-growing varieties can be selected to keep mowing to a minimum. On busy courses it is important to relieve compaction by using tractor mounted slitting tines which offer a good soil penetration. In the spring, a good harrowing of the fairways will help loosen the thatch to assist in restoring the turf’s vigour and stimulate tillering.
