Clay soil at Valley Country Club

Zach Bauer (ZBturf411 on Twitter) Superintendent at Valley Country Club in Colorado Springs Country Club posted this image of the clay soil at his site. A recent TurfChat with Zach highlighted his experience working with the soils at the site and a discussion of how to use the National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) Web Soil Survey to gain insights into soils around the US. The Web Soil Survey can help turf managers inform golfers and administrators why certain areas of a facility are difficult to manage. The information can be used to support management practices, equipment purchases, irrigation improvement and other expenses that may be needed to improve conditions.
