Thatch was always a problem for golf courses especially in the south. Hand raking with special rakes was the only way to control thatch.
George Low was Pro/Greenkeeper at Baltusrol and created this rake which made
the famous "Furrows of Oakmont". This was a heavy cast iron steel rake.
The above photographs are from a collection of slides that John Mascaro uses in a slide presentation entitled "the History of Turfgrass Maintenance". John is available for speaking engagements for local Golf Course Superintendents associations as well as Allied Association Trade Shows, Colleges and Universities.
