Been verti drained.  12 inch spikes forced into the ground to lift the divots then had 60 tonnes of compound raked in all over.  This will have a long term effect cutting down on the amount of cutting up and divots. It has also filled in around 90% of the holes that were there.  The pitch looks great at this time of year but it needed this work done badly.  As for re-laying that would be to expensive.  Take the pitch at Donny that cost 1million quid.

champ, we have had our bowling green verti-drained 3 times in the last 7 years and it doesn't have much effect for very long!!!!!!   The only answer is to instal a proper drainage system.
