South Course Tee Aeration

Leave a comment

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!

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!
