4-14-15 Aerification Update:

We started on Monday and completed PG & 1-9.  This year we punched 3/4″ solid tine holes, double rolled and changed/repaired the cup.  Today we punched holes on 10-18 and topdressed PG, 1-4, 10-14.

The rest of the week we will be topdressing the greens until all of the holes are filled.  Just like last fall, I am warning you now that you WILL be putting on sand through the weekend.  Yes I will repeat that you will be putting on sand through the weekend.

My crew will be in the way either by topdressing or dragging.  Sorry for the inconvenience but that is the only way to get the greens back to smooth and great in about 10-14 days with good weather.  That is my goal to get them completely back by May 1st.

So once again Sorry for the disruption but it has to be done.
