Fall Greens Aerification is Done

 It has been a long time since my last blog post.  In the last one, the headline read that "Spring Aerification is Complete."  It has been a long challenging summer since then.  We are in a drought, and temperatures have been above average for much of the summer, but we keep hoping that better weather is just a few days away.

We completed our fall aerification this week on the greens.  I anticipate that they will heal in quickly.  We did not pull a core this time.  A half inch solid tine was punched into the greens and then the holes were backfilled with sand.

We have begun the process of renovating more tees this fall. Above is the Blue tee on number 8, done last week.  You can see the baby grass growing and hopefully filling in soon.  Below is the Blue tee on hole 6 that was just done today.

Fall is considered the time for healing and re-growth on a golf course.  We will continue to do all that we can to expedite the process and get everything as nice as possible as quickly as possible.  Below is a picture of number two green taken earlier this summer.  This green has always been the most difficult one on the property.  This year it has survived very nicely.  We will do some minor plug repair, but no significant sod work will be required.
