Fall Aeration

The Green and Golf Committees had the opportunity to enjoy the comforts of the grounds maintenance building this week. The Green Committee meets once per month from March to November and discusses course conditions, policies, and strategies.

Fall aeration is well underway. The greens have been aerated & the plugs removed and filled with sand. This process is the biggest reason our greens survived this stressful season so well. Below is a video clip showing our aerifying and cleaning process.

Once the holes are filled with sand we blow off the excess sand and roll the green smooth to provide the best possible playing surface following aeration.
