On Monday of this week, we used a solid 1/2" tine on our zoysia tees to provide some deep aerating to our tees. We were able to go about 5-6" in depth to provide moisture penetration, additional rooting and exchange oxygen into our tees which can become heavily compacted. This was a non-disruptive type operation and in most cases the holes could not be seen because of the density of the turf. We will also be doing some core aerating in the next week or two along with our fairways which begin on Monday after the Invitational.
