Late this fall we started to spot deep tine some LDS (localized dry spot) in our fairways and approaches. We set the deep tine up with 1/2 inch solid tines at a depth of 9 inches. Most areas we had full penetration of the tine but in the some of the LDS areas we were only able to penetrated 7 inches. A Long term cultural program with this deep tine will help the over all soil health, playability and drainage of our fairways. We plan on doing some more in the spring when the soil is saturated from our winter and spring snows.
