The sunrise is always a great part of my day.  We are busy aerifying, spraying fall weeds, topdressing, and of course, regular set-up.  Our closing scramble is this weekend.  Looks like another golf season is in the books.

We notice that the tee markers are being scattered around the golf course at night.  Strange things routinely happen on the course, since we are in the middle of a housing development.  So, we shrug it off and proceed.  
A couple of days go by, and I notice that the traffic ropes are cut.  The cut on the ropes are perfect, like someone has scissors.
Coyotes.................they don't like to jump the ropes and will chew them in half.  I have witnessed the cutting ability of the canine with the late Henry.  Henry would chew through a nylon lead in a heatbeat.
Sure enough, upon examination of the tee markers, little teeth marks.  The coyotes must have pups and they think my tee markers make great chew toys.  crazy dogs!!!

Time to aerify

So it begins, greens aerification has begun.  We started with the white nine today, and will resume next monday with the blue and red nines.  This years process is a little different in that we are attempting to impact to upper layers and create more uniformity in the higher soil profile.  Playability should improve quickly, we have fertilized prior to aerifying and the shallow aerification keeps the surface firm.

Looks like the end of summer, more to come.
