    After aerating greens by removing what look like 1/2" plugs, how maticulously should the top dressing be applied ie. fill some of the holes, most, all? I notice on our course what seems to be an awfull lot of empty holes but am told it is OK. It looks like certain areas just don't get filled.

    A little extra sand can't hurt, fill it up. Did the green get drag matted after top dressing? How much top dressing was applied, was it applied by machine(terra topper) or by hand? Food for thought ,How can you put over holes? You usually want to level the green by top dressing and dragging. I would hope that who ever is in charge of that green knows what they are doing. They don't tolerate alot of mistakes.

    Rudy, what part of the USA are you in? Could you fill in your location so we have an idea where you are at? We don't need the town and address, but the town and/or State would be nice. ;)

    If you don't know how to do this, email me the location and I'll put it in for you.
