North Shore Golf Club is one of New Zealand’s finest golf courses and when they embarked on an organic matter monitoring programme (greens), their objective was to reduce thatch levels to improve the playability and quality of the greens year round. The annual testing of organic matter levels provided the course superintendent and agronomist the information needed to track the progress of the organic matter levels in relation to an adjusted maintenance programme. The process has been a huge success with significant reductions in thatch levels and an overall improvement in the quality and consistency of the greens.
