The fall equinox is only 22 days away and Labor Day is only a week away. This marks the traditional time of the year for Granite Bay's course aeration and the time of the year that our cool season turf will start to recover from the Summer.
Last week aerated the Santa Anna hybrid bermuda surrounds and are doing the same to the #17 fairway this morning Monday 8/31/20 before a 10:00 event. The rush on aerating these areas prior to the greens and other cool season turf is to capture as much warm weather that is left in the year for recovery of the warm season Santa Anna. This highlights some of the difficult maintenance strategies we are currently balancing with our mix of turf which hopefully will not be long term.
