Abstract: Soil particle distribution, pH, total nitrogen, available phosphorus, available potassium, available iron, available sulfur and organic matter of the putting greens at the Qinglong golf course were analysed. In the golf course soil beside individual greens, the organic matter concentration was about 5-10 g/kg, the proportion of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium was not in balance, and the pH of the greens soil were all alkaline (pH>7.8). Moreover, the microelement concentrations were low, the distribution of soil particles was fine, which affected aeration and drainage. The article suggests that the managers should increase organic fertility and phosphorus fertility, and regulate soil pH in order to benefit grass growth. In addition, soil testing is needed for rational application of fertilizer to ensure the turf is healthy.
