We Are Aerifying Greens With Needle Tines

We are needle tining greens beginning today. We will be performing this important cultural practice during "off-peak" periods to reduce inconvenience to members. Needle tining is a non-invasive type of aerification that utilizes a very small 3/16 inch solid tine. This type of aerification is used to vent turf during high stress periods. The weather conditions we've been experiencing have most certainly been stressful to turf. We are at the point of summer when turf stress is at its peak. Our goal every summer is to help our turfgrass survive the intense stress until weather patterns improve and turf can begin the recovery process. Only 34 days left until September!
