July 6 Update

Good morning!

We aerified the greens yesterday to allow air and water movement in the greens profile.  The greens will be “sandy” for the next week.  The forecast is rain from TS Elsa the next few days.   The range project is scheduled to be grassed this week and delays could happen if heavy rain persists.  We will continue to work diligently to finish the improvement as the weather allows!

Photo below shows #9 green profile with an aerification channel.  This allows roots to grow as well as water and oxygen to move in the profile.  Also note the sod layer from 2019 (dark bottom layer).  Aerification allows us to break these layers to give proper green soil function.  

See you on the course!
