Spring Aeration

Spring is here and finally, it's time to aerify these greens!  I sure that's exactly what you've all been thinking for the last month or so, right?  Maybe not.  Well, the clouds have parted and we've been given the green light from mother nature to get on with our springtime aeration.  The schedule is as follows:

Monday 4/4 - Back 9 greens & putting green

Tuesday 4/5 - Front 9 greens & chipping greens (front nine closed this day)

Wednesday 4/6 to Monday 4/11 - Tee, collar & approach aeration & sanding

Monday 4/11 to Friday 4/15 - Fairway Solid tine aeration (no disruption to play)

Monday 4/18 to Friday 4/22 - Rough core aeration

We will do everything possible to get the greens back into exellent condition and with our current forcast being ideal, this should be no problem.  We will be posting to the blog throughout the next few days detailing the aerification process for our greens.  There will be multiple posts and no email notice will be sent out so those of you interested, please check back here for the latest updates.  This is the most important time of the year for us and a succsesful aeration will set us up for great conditions throughout the year.

Thank You all from the Turf Department.
