Fairway aerification and verticutting



We are still in the process of cleaning up and prepping the golf course this morning after aerification and verticutting fairways. The picture above was taken right after verticutting on hole #5.   This process helps thin out the bermudagrass which will promote new lateral and vertical growth as well as allowing moisture and oxygen to reach the root zone more easily.  Fairways will be healthier and should be back to normal by the middle of next week and greens will be fully recovered by following week.

The North Course is scheduled to close the week of June 22nd due to aerifiication;  During this time we will be aerifying Greens, Tees and Fairways.

Estimated healing time for greens is two weeks.

In addition to aerifying, we will be verticutting all the fairways to help thin out the turf canapy.
