On Monday May 11th we deep tined the South Course greens. This is a form of aerification that uses solid tines that go to a depth of 8 – 10 inches. The benefits of this procedure are deeper rooting provided by the air channels and increased water infiltration. We have attached a video and pictures below that demonstrate this process.

Here the spacing on the surface can be seen as well as the depth demonstrated by the white stick.

After the greens were deep tined we rolled them to smooth the surface.

Here is a close up showing before and after rolling the greens. The part of the green in top of the picture has not been rolled while the bottom has been rolled.
