Greens Aeration and What To Expect
It's been a tough summer with the heat, humidity, rain and golf so it's time to AERATE THE GREENS as we get ready to head into the fall season. Greens aeration is extremely important for the overall health and condition of our putting greens so although it is a short inconvenience, it is a necessary maintenance practice to ensure we enjoy the best putting surfaces year round.
Beginning on Thursday, August 30th, all golfers should expect to see visible aeration holes on the putting green surfaces along with a heavy layer of sand. Over the following 10-14 days (weather influenced) the sand will work its way down into the turf and the holes will begin to fill in. By the end of the recovery time, the greens will heal completely and we will enjoy a great Fall and Winter season - weather permitting!
As always - PLEASE remember to be patient during the recovery process, there is nothing we can do to speed this up. The greens will be slow and a bit bumpy as they recover. AND - for the love of the game = PLEASE REMEMBER TO FIND AND REPAIR YOUR BALL MARKS DURING THIS TIME. The Pitman Golf Course thanks everyone for their understanding and cooperation during Greens Aeration.
