Aerification Day One

Today was the first day of spring aerification and it got off to a shaky start to say the least. The temperature this morning was 28 degrees with a heavy frost and to top it off snow was still on the ground from the storm from Thursday of last week. It is not often that you have to shovel off greens before you can aerifiy them, but today that is exactly what happened.

We finally hit our stride about mid morning with all operations such as aerifing greens, topdressing greens, Gradens on tees and verti-cutting fairways all started progressing through the golf course.

Let’s hope tomorrow's predicted good weather holds, so that we can make up some lost time from the delays we encountered today.
