Scioto Country Club – New Green Construction
Witness a time lapse video of the construction of a USGA green.
The Scioto Country Club in Columbus, Ohio is hosting the 2016 Senior Open. Last year, a new practice chipping green using Profile Porous Ceramics was built for the upcoming tournament. Their greens are an 8-1-1 with 10% PPC and 10% soil and the new green was the same mix ratio as well. Head Superintendent, Bob Becker, recorded a time lapse video of the construction of the USGA green (12 inches of mix, 4 inches of rock and drainage) with dates and temperatures.
View the video to see how much work goes into building the green.
