Aeration Time

Aerating Greens
Aerating Fairways
Victoria Park East aerated greens and fairways last week.
We aerated the front nine on Tuesday. The process takes the whole day. The actual aeration is done in the morning and the clean up process starts when the cores are dry. The clean up was halted by rain and thunderstorms late in the afternoon. We were not able to finish the clean up until Wednesday afternoon. The weather was much drier on Thursday and we were able to finish the back nine greens and fairways. Greens will take about one week to heal. Today has been six days since we did the front nine greens and they are filling in nicely.

Aeration is necessary practice for the overall health of the turf. I want to thank all the members and guests for being so understanding throughout this process.

Until Next Time....   David
