For the next two weeks the Valley Course will be closed for aerification (see schedule posted on 7/17/12). Along with aggressive aeration of the entire golf course we are taking advantage of this close down to complete some extensive and necessary lake bank restoration projects. It is going to be a very busy couple of weeks but the end product will increase turfgrass health and the aesthetics of the golf course.
As mentioned in the aeration schedule; over the past 2 days the course has been scalped down and top dressed in preparation for aerating. Today the greens were aerated with 5/8' OD tines to a depth of 7". This is the deepest tine to ever be pulled from the Valley greens and aims to break through the layers that have formed on the greens over the past 28 years.
