Aerification of the Greens Completed

The grounds staff recently finished the aerification of the greens with excellent results. In order to continue to impact the poor soils of the near 100 year old greens, we aerified twice to incorporate over 100 tons of sand into the profile. With the late aerfication date the healing process will be slower compared to our typical early September timeline due to the cooler soil temperatures. In the coming weeks additional sand topdressing will be applied depending on growth to continue to smooth the surface. Thank- you again for your patience during this important process.

Thank-you,

Pat O'Brien
