Needle Tine on the South Course…

Leave a comment

We needle tine aerated the front nine South course greens yesterday, and we are needle tine aerating the back nine South course greens today.  This process is simply done to alleviate surface tension entering the warm, summer months.  This will allow for better water and nutrient penetration down to the root system.  It is a fairly quick and non-disruptive process.  We roll the greens immediately after allowing for the putting surface to be very close to normal.  Thanks for your understanding during this very important cultural practice.  Good luck to those competing in the member/guest this weekend.  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!
