The process included:
- Mowing the fairway
- Core aerating using a 5/8" tine.
- Ground the cores with a flail mower which turned a majority of the material into powder.
- Drove a cart with a drag mat over the remaining soil, cores and grass tufts to assist in moving the material down into the profile.
- Used a blower to remove the remnants off of the fairways.
- Mow the fairway.
This process takes between 2-3 hours depending upon the size of the fairway.

|You can see the cleaner path created by the blower removing the material off of the fairways.|
