Greens Aerification

This week was our scheduled aerification for our greens, Even after 3" of rain Sunday night we were still able to start pulling plugs on Monday. Halfway through we developed a leaking tire on our aerification tractor which got worse as the day went on to the point of us finally having to stop. After ordering two new $850 each tires and mounting them we were able to again resume the aerification on Wednesday afternoon. We managed to get all but 4 greens completed before getting hammered with rain once again. We were finally able to complete the last greens Thursday morning.
While we were able to punch all of the holes we are still not able to put sand on the greens or try to cut them down. Currently I am hopeful that we can topdress them on Monday.
