We were able to aerify both practice greens and the chipping green prior to the storm. We felt using a larger tine (5/8”) producing a larger hole on these greens was warranted because of the above normal traffic they receive combined with their small size. We will NOT be using the larger tines (5/8”) holes on 1-18, but will be using the smaller tines (1/2”).
Because we are aerifying a little late in the season this fall we decided to aerify both practice putting surfaces at the same time rather then the separating the two by a few weeks. We had been aerifying one and leaving another alone for a few weeks based on Member request’s and will continue to do so in the future. We just felt that this time we needed to get them both done and not risk recovery issues.
