A look back at aerificaion
We got through another fall aerification successfully even with the rains and a shortage of crew members. We aerified front 9 fairways the first week of September with 1" x 11.5" solid tines at a depth of 5". During the week we also verticut front 9 tees and approaches. The second week we did the greens and approaches with a 5/8" tine at spacing grid of 1.5". The third week we wrapped up the back 9 fairways and tee aerification and finished the verticutting process on the back 9 tees and approaches.
