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.

Drill & Fill Aerification Today!

We are doing drill and fill aerification on a few greens today. This process will help with drainage and the relief of soil compaction. We are only doing a couple of the more problem greens. Hole spacing will vary dependent upon soil conditions. Tighter spacing will be used in areas that have the worst drainage.
The machine drills a hole then fills it with sand as seen below.
Maintenance staff fills the hopper with kiln dried sand. The sand must be completely dry so it does not clog the delivery tubes.
