What factors influence the speed of our greens?

There are a large number of factors which can affect the speed of the greens. Every day the weather conditions change a little in temperature and moisture content, this has an effect on the how the grass is able to absorb fertiliser (known as availability of the fertiliser) so in turn will influence the grass growth potential. The greens are cut or rolled every day in the summer months and sometimes both when needed. It is also worth remembering the greens are cut in the morning so generally are quicker then as the grass will continue to grow throughout the day.
