Welcome to my blog!
It is my intention to give the readers a better understanding of what we do to maintain The Farms Country Club's 18 hole championship golf course and grounds.

Greens Aerification Way Ahead of Schedule!

By day's end, twelve greens will have been aerified and topdressed. Our scheduled aerifcation of greens was planned to begin on April ninth, but the weather allowed us to get ahead of this schedule. The weather looks great next week and the plan is to complete the remaining seven greens on Monday and Tuesday.
All greens will be open this Friday through Sunday (weather dependant... snow Saturday night???). We plan to aerify the remaining greens on Monday and Tuesday. The remaining greens are: #5, 11, 12, 13, 16, 18 and the practice green.
Regardless of what Mother Nature throws at us in the coming days, course conditions are far ahead of schedule!
