Deep Tine Aerifying Greens Isn't The End Of Great Greens!

We have deep-tine aerified the greens. This is an important agronomic step in preparing the greens for the stresses of winter. After aerifying, the greens are double rolled to smooth them. We had tremendous success in achieving our agronomic goal while still providing players with excellent putting surfaces. Don't think the golf season is over yet! You will be thrilled with the conditions!

The Greens are stimping at 11 feet today and the ball roll is smooth!

Check out this video of Head Golf Professional Jim Hanlon putting on the eleventh green...
