Fairway Aerification Starts Today!

The parade of aerifiers, run by Shrewsbury Landscapes, began on hole number one this morning.
While they should have the coring process on all eighteen holes completed by tomorrow morning, the cleanup is what takes time.
 The cores must dry before our team starts the cleanup. First we drag the cores to knock all the soil off. That leaves us the work of cleaning up the thatch laden remnants. We use a few blowers and a sweeper-vacuum to accomplish this. While the coring goes quickly it normally takes us most of the week to finish the cleanup. Please refrain from playing on holes where there are workers. We will do our best to keep inconvenience to a minimum while we accomplish this very important maintenance practice. Thank you for patience!
