Greens Aerification

Monday we completed the daunting task of greens aerification.  We used 1/2" core tines and went on 1.5" spacing.  That tine size with tight spacing allowed us to remove just under 9% of material which is exactly what we were looking to accomplish.  Tuesday afternoon, we rolled (2x) and mowed greens to smooth them out and clean up excess sand on the surface.  Over the coming days, we will continue to roll greens which will keep them nice and smooth.  If the cool weather forecast holds true, the cool temps will slow down the recovery process, but the greens will be putting true regardless of the temps.

Clubhouse Landscape & Tee Path Cleanup

As spring rolls on, my crew remains extremely busy not only maintaining the golf course, but freshening up the landscape around the clubhouse and on the course.  The landscape beds on the course have been edged and re-mulched as well as the mulch paths on #4, #8, #13.  Everything is coming together just in time for some beautiful weather this weekend.  Be sure to thank the guys as you see them on the course for their hard work day in and day out.
