North Course Tee Aeration

1 Comment

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!

For more information regarding the benefits of aeration, please refer to the previous post: https://stowacresturf.com/2010/04/30/aeration-over-already/.

I am the Golf Course Superintendent at Stow Acres Country Club located in Stow, MA. I am entering my sixth season as the course Superintendent. My staff and I are very excited to begin this season as we are continuing to make changes to this wonderful facility. I graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 2006 with a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Horticulture and Turfgrass Management. Before Stow Acres, I did an internship at one of the country's top 100 courses, The Stanwich Club located in Greenwich, CT. I worked as an Assistant Superintendent at Oakley Country Club located in Watertown, MA and Stow Acres Country Club South Course before becoming the Superintendent at Stow Acres CC. I am married to my soul mate and we have two incredible kids! My course counterpart, Kingston, loves riding shotgun in the cart. In my downtime I enjoy writing for and managing www.iturfapps.com. Hope you enjoy the blog!

  1. What kind of aerator is that in the video? That this is the craziest aerator I have ever seen. Does it work on regular lawns? That machine is crazy. Love the site keep up the good work I got some good ideas already from your site. Thanks!!!
