Update on fairway aeration

Our fairway aeration has progressed over this past week. We completed 9 more fairways on Monday and Tuesday. Another slight technical issue delayed our efforts three more hours which probably would have allowed us to complete our job. We have 5, 8 approach side, 11 and 12 to complete. With rain happening on Tuesday and more predicted for Wednesday and Thursday, we will finally complete the last couple of fairways next week.

Sorry for the inconvenience this has created but things are cleaning up pretty quickly. Once they are mowed a second time, the playability is much better. Looks like heat is coming in a gain late next week so they should close up rather well in the next 7 days or so.

I will post some interesting pictures of the dragging, mowing and blowing off of the excess material next week when we finish the remaining holes.

The fairway picture below is #18 which was completed on Tuesday 7-28.

The picture below is Hole #1 which was aerified on 7-20. A week makes a big difference.
