Green Aerification Mon - Tueday

This Monday and Tuesday we will be doing a new procedure on our greens called "Drill and Fill".  A large machine actually drills holes 3/4" by 12 inches deep.  We will be following him with our own machine.  Check out the pictures for a better description.  They were taken at Montammy Golf Club last year.  The main reason we are doing this is to improve the drainage on our greens.  It will take a little time for the greens to heal, but if the weather stays warm we should be in great shape heading into the main part of the winter, which will mean good greens in the spring. 

On another note, because we have seeded so many areas in the roughs we are asking everyone to please keep there carts in the fairways as much as possible. 

Thanks for you patience,  We need to do this in order to insure good conditions in the future.
