June 29 Closing

Finally got a good amount of rain over an inch!!  The course was really dry with no rain and 90 degree temperatures.

Greens:  Solid tine (3/4″) aerification with heavy topdress.  Greens will be rolled and by Friday should be pretty smooth.  The greens needed the compaction relief and some sand dilution for thatch.

Tees/Approaches

I verticut the Tees and Approaches which helps with firmness and thatch reduction.  Soil amendments were added as well for microbe health and root stimulation
