Ponding on long-established greens is commonplace in very wet weather. Not only does it mean a switch to temporary greens in the short term but the fine grasses suffer in the longer term. One answer is to remake the green to USGA specification but it is expensive - initial cost in excess of £20,000 and substantial ongoing annual costs.
Shelton Sportsturf Drainage Solutions has three low-cost techniques to drain established greens. Installation causes minimum disruption and enables one to 'drain today and play tomorrow'.
In all cases installation takes ½ -1 day per green. * Cost wise £x can vary depending on size of green and how the work is undertaken; usually starting around £600 and rising to £800-£900.
