The topdressing sand we use for filling the aerification holes is kiln-dried, which allows it to spread easily, quickly filling the holes. Once this sand got wet, it was like trying to spread cake frosting across the greens.
|Greens aerification started with sunny skies.|
Tuesday came, and we aerified tees...in the rain. Once again, both cleanup and working the topdressing sand into the holes were challenging activities. We absolutely could not have gotten the job done without the great teamwork that took place. This year, several members of the Pro Shop staff pitched in to help, which made a huge difference in our success.
We are moving on to fairways this week, and that can mean only one thing: The weather forecast is calling for temperatures well above average. To this, we say, "Bring it on!" The team is ready to don their ear plugs and dust masks and tackle this important task!
