Golf courses on peat underground

The real challenge is golf courses on peat underground. It’s literally a moving target. The peat underground must not be drainaged too much, because then it sinks. Putting in extra soil does not help. It makes the peat underground sink even more.

Solutions are found in high end drainage systems and water wells.

Maintenance requires good knowledge among the greenkeepers about what is and what is not possible.
