    Sure, hydrojecting is a fantastic tool. It alleviates a bit of compaction, introduces oxygen into the rootzone, can improve water percolation rates and all with hardly any disruption to play.
    What it doesn’t do is remove thatch and the hole left behind isn’t large enough to incorporate any sand or new material into the rootzone.

      they are a very unreliable machine and break quite often. Ive used it before for areas such as cart path edges(on offs) and other hi traffic areas with some success. They do nothing for thatch/ organics removal. Also the hole is too small to incorporate sand inyo the profile.

        I've also seen them being used on The Old Course. Maybe sand top dressing into the tine holes isn't that important, just a ritual? Or maybe if the green is sand-based by construction, it's just fine? I know that our greens get top-dressed regularly with fine sand, and they don't show any signs of thatch. (btw, we're not located that far from your stated location)

          Your assessment is pretty close. If drainage is a big concern i wouldnt fill my holes everytime with sand. You can have mich less surface disruption with a small tine and have the same effect of aeration. The problem is many courses arent afforded tge time or money to do the small ones often so have to do it big one or two a year.

          I have to assume with lots of frequent small applications of sand there would be some verticutting taking place before the sand. Another excellent way to increase smooth, firmness and decrease thatch with little disruption.

          The solution to pollution is dilution. Sand being the solution and thatch being the pollution.

            Appears Turnberry did theirs recently. Maybe another week for them to be decent again?

                          Our course just had the Drill and fill technique and the greens are super after, a huge difference than the usual aeration.

                            Was lied to
                            Played Redcrest on Friday - greens had been aerated that week. Still not terrible
