Greens Aerification

On Sunday evening April 8th we began the process of aerification on our greens.  We were able to get 9 holes punched and picked up before night fell upon us and we were unable to continue.  We picked up where we left off on Monday April 9th and finished punching and picking up cores by 11:00 am.  After the process of removing the material from greens we began topdressing sand onto the greens to fill in the holes.  After the sand dries, we were able to start to drag in the sand.  This process was completed by 6:00 pm and were able to open all 18 holes for play on Tuesday April 10th.  This is a time consuming process that no one enjoys but it is extremely beneficial to the health of the greens.

Its been a little over 2 weeks since we completed the Aerification of Greens.  They are recovering nicely from this and continue to fill the holes with new healthy turf.  Between these 2 weeks we were able to get some much needed fertilizer on them to help speed up regrowth and got out our fungicide application, Primo/Proxy Application and a wetting agent to help move water through the Profile.
