Aerifying the roughs & Fairways

It is that time of the year again when we start preparing our course for the new spring growing season. We have started aerifying our roughs this week and are scheduled to aerifye the fairways next week finally completing the Aerification schedule with our greens on Monday the 25th. We aerifye the soil to allow needed oxygen to the root zone and allow the toxic gases to release from the soil. This improves water penetration as well as the overall health of the turf root system. You will notice that for around a month or two after aerifying the roughs and fairways that the ground dries out faster after the rains allowing us to get off of the cartpaths much quicker. Our next step will be putting out fertilizer on the fairways.
