HOLY MOLY BAT MAN !!!

Yes we are very "holy" now that we are in our third and final day of aerification.   Things are going very well.  We had some minor issues with a rain storm that hit us Sunday night but other than that things have gone fairly well.   I am not complaining about having a few cooler days either.   We worked from 4:30 to 10:00 pm. in the lights on Sunday.   From 6:00 to 7:30 pm. yesterday and we hope to be finished by 5:00 pm. today.  Give or take a few minutes.  The old adage take two steps backwards to go three forward is very appropriate when you are talking about aerification.   In a few short weeks we will be back better than ever.   Our goal is to be in prime condition for our Member-Member.  Here are some pictures to explain the process:  

Just getting started early Monday Morning.    
Aerify green, Pick up plugs, Top-Dress (this picture) than brush the sand into the holes.

















Brushing in 10 green.  


Finished product.

Fairways are also aerified.  This is number 11.  in this picture, all we have left to do is pick up the thatch.
