Moving the greens aerification dates forward by two weeks was successful as we accomplished a thorough deep tining on all of the bentgrass. The weather also allowed us to aerify most of the fairways; we will finish the remainder in the Spring.
Holes 5 and 8 received much-needed special aerification in September and were looking much better going under snow cover. We have stripped all of the sod that was heavily contaminated with poa annua directly next to the greens and will continue with our plans to resod those areas in April.
The early snowfall of the first week of November put a halt to all of our projects going into winter. We were able to get a good start on the renovation of the tees on twelve which we will finish in the Spring.
Everything else on our list will be reevaluated at that time with consideration for weather and available time.
