Greens Aerification Finished

We completed our first greens aerification of the season last Monday and Tuesday.  The process was successful and our goal of pulling out large cores deep followed by a topdressing to fill the holes was realized.  Following the aerification and topdressing, the greens were rolled with a 2500 pound roller 3 times and our speed roller 2 times by Thursday.  The collers were also aerified and rolled.  The greens are recovering nicely and we are getting back on a regular mowing and rolling routine.  Today we aerified the large driving range tee.
