Fall Aerification

We're set to begin our fall aerification of the golf course beginning this coming Monday thru Wednesday. The Aerification process will be similar to what was done this spring, with a “light” aerification being done. Follow this link to see what will take place

The reasoning for a lighter than normal aerification, is largely due to the fact that the irrigation renovation project starts on Monday as well. Typically the fall aerification is very aggressive and disrupts the golf course for several weeks.

The contractor has to do the mainline tie in and there is an unknown as to how long the water will have to be off on the entire golf course. The risk would be too great if problems are encountered while doing the tie in, so I thought would be best to go a little more conservative with aerification.
