I guess I should add that what you are seeing is a plug thats pulled out. Its a 3/8 core thats 4 to 5 inches long. once blown off the green they look better. Then we sand them or topdress we call it. Then drag a big mat broom called a coco mat. At that point the look ok. In a week they should be jumping

Hey Matts, how about some pics of your wide area mowing equipment. I work for an estate, and the owner likes to keep about 80 acres of fescue looking like his front yard. We currently mow with a 16 foot bat wing bush hog, owner is wanting to buy a Toro wide area rotary mower. just wondered what you mow fairways with?

We use a John Deere 365 for the rough. Its a 5 gang pull behind, hydralic powered. The fairways are cut with a big 5 gang self powered unit. I beleive its a 4365B. Reels are the only way to go for a smooth cut. I will post some pics on your thread.
