If members are talking about ironing this weekend, don't walk away. Its got nothing to do with creases in their golf gear. As golfers demand increased green speed the ability to ‘iron’ greens is vital in producing decent surfaces. It has the benefit of allowing speed and consistency to be maintained during times of stress negating the need to mow constantly. This self-propelled unit is operated by pedals and a joy stick. Rolling is a quick and efficient operation that requires one operator and takes no longer to complete than mowing greens, while adding up to 1.5ft of pace. Ironing alone does not produce quick smooth surfaces, but is the final piece of the jig-saw in a good cultural programme that includes aeration, scarifying, verti cutting and top-dressing.
