Fall aeration has begun in earnest. Last week we were able to aerate all of the tee boxes for the final time this season. Today, we began to aerate the fairways. We are using coring tine to pull up soil and create a natural composing system that will improve the chemical, physical, and biological conditions of our fairways. We will begin posting the hole that we are aerating to the website daily, to avoid any confusion.
This fall we purchased a new ride on bunker rake. The rake will help us increase the consistency of bunkers while reducing labor hours spent hand raking bunkers. It represents an industry wide push for new technologies and techniques to help increase automation and decrease labor inputs.
