Labor Day is nearly upon us so we thought we would provide a friendly reminder that fall aeration will take place on September 7 & 8.  We will have 9 holes closed each day to allow the greens to be aerified.  We have already begun the green healing process: we have applied fertilizer and have withheld application of plant growth regulators.  This (along with cooler weather) will provide a flush of growth which will aid in speedy recovery of aeration holes.  We will also be diligently assessing ball roll and will topdress the greens until they are rolling smooth and true.

The fairways and tees will be aerified once the greens are finished and should be completed by September 16- depending on weather.  These areas will not require closures and should cause minimal disruption to play.
