Practice Green Gets Aerified More Agressively
We are being more agressive with the aerification of the practice green. We used 5/8 inch tines instead of the 3/8 inch tines used on the other eighteen greens. We also used a closer spacing. We need to be this aggressive so we can continue to improve turf health and get the best results possible with our overseeding plan. Everything we do between now and May 2011 helps to ensure the greens success next year. We are right on track! I am confident that the practice green will be much improved next season and play just like the rest of our greens. I thank you for your patience.
