Aerating the golf course week

This week we have attacked the golf course with aerators.  We started out aerating greens with a 3/8inch tine spacing at 1.5 inches.  Topdressing sand, brushing,blowing and rolling completed the process.  Next we attack the Bermuda collars and approaches.  Plugs were collected and the areas were cleaned off.  Topdressing sand will be incorporated into these areas next week.
Fairways were aerated using larger machines with larger holes. The plugs were dragged in, blown off and are ready to be mowed.  Rough areas are the last areas to be cleaned up. The rough areas will be cleaned up by Friday.  Fertilizer has been applied to the golf course to help push the bermudagrass along. This has been a long hard week!  A big thank you goes out to the turfcare staff for their   
dedication and hard work.
