Fall 2013 Aerification Recovery

With Fall aerification behind us we are now focused on recovery. You will notice that we are taking the piles of plugs from the fairways and using them to fill holes along cart paths and cart entrance/exit points. They will be seeded with the hope to have a nice stand of turf in the Spring.

There are 3 keys to recovery for the greens. They are:

1. Fertility
2. Filling all holes with sand
3. Weather

We are going back to any greens that do not have all holes filled and topdressing them by hand. Our fertility program is strong and therefore weather will be the main factor in getting a quick recovery. At this point warm weather is want we want. Also, a nice soaking rain to wash in all the topdressing sand would help as well.
