Aeration and Tennis Update

Another sign of Spring is the conditioning of the Har-Tru courts for the upcoming season; these processes were completed last week. Coming out of winter, the courts are extremely soft, we will continue to firm-up these surfaces by rolling. With a little help from Mother Nature and some dry weather we hope to have the uppper courts open by April 7th, the lower courts may take a few days longer beacause they retain water and sit in the shade, in comparison to the upper courts. Stay tuned.

Last week, our team aerified the putting and teeing surfaces with excellent results, these surfaces are healing well, however they will take longer to heal in comparison to the fall aeration because the soil temperatures are much cooler and the days are shorter. Healing time will take another full two weeks unless Larry can get on the rest of the greens to help the cause. Thanks you for your patience!
