I hope you are enjoying this tremendous Fall weather as much as we are! We will be aerating the South Course tees today and tomorrow. The same process will be carried out as was done on the North Course last week. The tees are cored, cores are blown off, and the tee is slice seeded with a bentgrass blend. The tees on both course will be fertilized this week. The North Course tees were mowed today with buckets to help remove the last remaining debris. They cleaned up and recovered very nicely from aeration.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation during this necessary cultural practice on our turf. See you on the course!
