Randwick Racecourse
Sand Grooving

During November 2019 we completed the sand grooving works required on the Course Proper at Royal Randwick Racecourse


The total area of works was 8.7ha (87,000m2), at a depth of 125mm, and was completed in twelve days. Sand grooving is method of cutting 125mm deep, and 20mm wide trenches, 200mm apart, and filling with washed drainage sand. The SandMaster is a one-pass aerator and slit drainage machine that allows the use of various grades of sands, or other soil amendments.

The SandMaster mounted behind the Verti-Quake will create deep slits using vibrating coulter knives that leaves the turf surface ready for use. Turf Drain Australia would like to thank Greg and his team for their help during the completion of these works.
