Greens Aerification

The greens were aerified on Monday using 1/2" tines.  This is a slightly larger tine size than we've used the past few times, therefore the healing process will be a bit longer.  However, by going with this bigger tine now, we will not need to do another aerification until next year. 

In order to fill the holes, an average of 7,000 pounds of sand was used per green.  Some timely rain during the week has done a nice job of working this into the turf canopy, and cool nights will aid in the healing process.
A good dew pattern in the morning is a sign of healthy turf, on the road to recovery from aerification.
