On Sunday evening we began North Course aerification and completed greens, tees, and fairways by Monday evening. Dry, hot, and windy conditions complicated aerification, especially Monday evening. Although the sand fills the holes much easier, in these conditions the greens are under stress and our processes compounded the stress the turf experienced. Due to our schedule and time constraints we pushed on anticipating cooler conditions and rain Tuesday. Tuesday provided another day of heat and wind which held the turf under stress for another day.
When playing the course, you will notice yellowing in some areas especially on the back 9. This is mostly bruising and tissue damage . The grass plants are healthy and with time will grow out the damaged tissue. Applications of fertilizer and irrigation/rainfall will help speed recovery.
