Aerification Day Three Update

Day three of Aerification could be coined a day playing in the sand....

The day started at daybreak as we finished the remaining greens that needed to be aerated.  Holes 15-18 were poked and cleaned prior to lunch with a small crew.

We then began the process of topdressing.

Then I followed in behind with a Coco fibered drag mat to work the sand into the holes and canopy.

Final step is that I make it rain!  Beginning the process of beating the sand down into the canopy.

Throughout the day, we also had a team topdressing tees.

The process of topdressing tees was extremely time consuming and took over half the staff the entire day.  Some we were able to get the mechanical topdresser on.
Others we had to go the old fashion route due to the terrain surrounding the tees wouldn't allow the topdresser to perform safely.


The nightcap even included Divot taking a dip after a long day!
