level playing field

Asked June 21, 2013, 10:37 PM EDT

Im taking over a practice soccer field that is used a lot by a western MI high school. The fields turf stand is doing well but its lumpy like severe nercrotic ring spot on a non irrigated lawn. Whats the best approach to level? The lumps are not huge but could cause injury if a player was making a very hard cut in direction. I was thinking lots of areation and top dressing? Any advice would help I primarily over see large commercial lawns with little to no foot traffic.
