Our "First Day of Spring"

We came in Sunday morning to discover that the first day of spring had not been too kind to us. Due to a combination of several days in a row of heavy rain, and unusually strong winds for this region of the country, we lost two trees completely as well as large portions of several others. Although the golf course is totally saturated, our staff is working hard to put the golf course back together, and push forward with our preparation for the fast approaching season.

Aerification Progress Report

One week removed from core aerifying the greens with .600" tines, we've seen excellent recovery. The greens should be pretty close to normal by the end of this week, and the fairways, although soft, should be looking good as well.

As soon as the fairways are done we will be starting the tees and approaches. This part of the process should be pretty quick and painless. Our target for completing the entire course is Thursday of this week, and if the weather holds, we will have no problem meeting that time frame.

In the thirteen years that I have been in the industry, I've never seen the aerification process go better than it did here this season, and it's definitely showing in the quick recovery of the golf course.
