The greens aerification has been completed. As discussed in other posts, we completed the aerification utilizing a 1/4" coring tine. We blew all the plugs off, BUT did not apply sand. However we did apply the Ecolite and some organic fertilizer to aid in root recovery. This material is still on the surface of the green and may cause minor putting disruption.
This morning, the day after aerification, we are unable to mow or roll the greens because the surface of the greens are wet from the dew. If we were to attempt to mow or roll, the mower blades would be damaged and/or the roller would pick-up all the material on its' drums. We are going to attempt to mow the greens this afternoon, it is dependent on the amount of play on the course.
The aerification was extremely successful! We are looking forward to a rapid recovery and the ability to begin pushing our greens again.
