Greens Complex at Aura Farm

Comparing Established Procedures with New Methods

Like much of Aura Farm, the Greens Complex is a place to think outside the box. We are not trying to buck the system or prove anyone wrong, we are just trying to look at things from a new perspective in hopes of providing additional solutions. 

Greens Complex West

About Current Turf Conditions

Sprigged in late Spring 2021, the Aura Greens Complex West is a Champion Bermudagrass surface. The greens have been divided equally and are identically treated.

The Aquatrols rootzone consists of a 60% sand and 40% mushroom soil mix. With a depth of 16 inches, the rootzone sits directly above the runoff drains. A 5 mil plastic barrier sits above the imported subgrade.

The USGA portion of the complex consists of an 80% sand and 20% mushroom soil mix. The depth is a shallower 12 inches with a 4 inch layer of pea gravel above the runoff drain. The subgrade is also covered in 5 mil plastic.

Central Fairway

The Central Fairway is between our West and East Greens Complexes at Aura Farm. This area serves as a barrier between the two areas, and also provides us with another area to observe results.

Greens Complex East

About Current Turf Conditions

Originally seeded in October 2020, the East Complex was reseeded in April 2021 with a 007 Creeping Bentgrass. These greens have also been divided equally and are identically treated.

The Aquatrols rootzone consists of a 60% sand and 40% mushroom soil mix. With a depth of 16 inches, the rootzone sits directly above the 4” ADS perforated runoff pipes. A 5 mil plastic barrier sits above the imported subgrade. The nominal perc rate is 4”per hour.

The USGA portion of the complex consists of 100% sand. This depth is also a shallower 12 inches with a 4 inch layer of pea gravel above the runoff drain. The subgrade is also covered in 5 mil plastic. The nominal perc rate is 54”per hour.
