Aeration week is going very well. The weather has been perfect and the team is putting in long hours to take care of this important agronomic process. Aeration is vital to the long term health of our turfgrass systems. When we core aerate it is like a farm plowing a field. During this time were are managing our organic matter, helping our soil mirobiome, alleviating compaction, and creating pore space for new root growth this fall.
This past week the team has managed to core aerate all of our bentgrass playing surfaces. Greens, tees and approaches were also topdressed with sand. The fairway process that we did during mid-fall the past few seasons has already been completed. We chose to get the fairways done early because of a shift in the weather to a more fall like pattern. All areas were applied with a mixture of different soil amendments and organic fertilizer.
As I write this we are finishing up the last of the fairway aeration, fertilizing fairways, and putting the cups back in the greens. The team as completed an immense amount of work these past 4 days. While we will be open tomorrow, please give us a week or so until condition start to reassemble our normal standards. Thank you so much for all your support this year. This past weeks aeration should set us up for an amazing fall of golf here at the crest.
