The weather continues to be in our favor today which will enable us to complete topdressing of the greens. There are only 4 greens to complete: # 4, 5, 7 & 9. The topdressing is scheduled to be delivered at 10 am, so we should be completed by 3 pm.
Fairway aerification will be in progress today on holes 7, 8 & 12. The smaller section of 7 fairway along with the larger section of 8, and the bottom of 12 are aerated using solid tines. These tines do not pull a plug. This method allows us the firm up the surface of these normally wet fairways by filling the aeration holes with topdressing. If we used coring tines we would have to remove the cores by hand before we topdressed which would be very labor intensive and cost prohibited. These fairways along with # 3 landing area are the only ones that are topdressed.
We will resume core aeration on Tuesday August 26 on the back nine fairways, weather permitting of course. Thanks for everyone’s patience’s during the entire aerification process.
