|Hole #12 Friday Morning|
|Needle Tine aeration #13 Green|
We needle tined and top dressed the greens on Tuesday. Mowing and rolling the greens daily, and foot traffic from players compacts the greens. Compaction leads to poor water, air and nutrient movement in the soil and can compromise the quality of grass. The Aeration process helps water to penetrate and move through the greens surface by creating pore space in the soil. The benefits from aeration, allows us to manage the greens aggressively to provide best playing conditions, and healthy turf. Playability is not compromised through this form of aeration because the holes are small (1/4 inch) and no core is removed.
