I have referred to the need for keeping the mowing height on the greens a little higher in times of stress and that particularly applies to the River greens at the moment. The photo below is an excellent demonstration of the result of a higher height of cut, albeit quite small. The photo is of the 12th River green and the green line that is evident is where the coring machine overlapped a little during last years renovation. This resulted in a slight depression in the green that is not noticeable when you putt but allows the grass to have a fraction more leaf resulting in the green line.
