AERIFICATION UPDATE


Better to be lucky than good.  The contractor had a cancellation so we were able to push the aerification to Monday instead of Tuesday.  Along with perfect weather the course is ready for play.   All the fairways and Collars are finished.  We also spiked the greens on Monday but that does not affect ball roll and already is hard to see.  We are going to hand seed damaged areas on greens.   As a reminder our greens aerification will occur in November this year.   

Cart Path update:     We currently are in the process of finalizing the contract.   A new map has been placed in the foyer.  Take a look, it contains the latest updates to the plan.  Along with fixing up our paths, there is some re-routing that will minimize disruption  and will provide a safer means to travel around the course.  We are hoping to get the shovel in the ground the beginning of September.  Every effort will be made to provide good golfing conditions with a minimum of hole closures.   Thanks for your patience, there certainly will be some disruption as process gets started.   

The contractor uses three of these machines in order to finish in one day. 

Make sure to look at the new layout.  There are some great changes 

Close up of greens,  spiking does not affect ball roll. 

Close up of fairways,  we will play winter rules for a while.  The process has little affect on playability.
