Preparing the blue

We have begun aerification on the blue nine greens today.  We will continue next week on the white and red.  Getting these greens done early means two things for us; 1. That the recovery time is quicker, and 2. The grass that is filling in is bentgrass and not poa annua.  We take a great deal of care to fill all the holes as far up as we can, and we think we provide a pretty good product considering the disruption that takes place.  If you have never seen the process, I think you would be amazed, it is a great team effort for sure.  This cultural practice (aerification) is very important to the health and quality of our greens, anyone who enjoys quality conditions, should appreciate the efforts put forth, because it is not a picnic on this end.
