We aerated the front nine North tees yesterday, and we are aerating the back nine North tees today. This process helps with nutrient and water delivery, and it is a similar process to greens. Once the tee is aerated, the cores are blown off and the tee is slice-seeded. A fertilizer will applied next week, once the seed coat softens and the tees return to normal appearance. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you, but it is very non-disruptive to playing conditions. Thanks for your support! See you on the course!
