Fall Aeration Schedule

 

Our greens have not been core aerified since November 2011. It is crucial that the weather will cooperate to allow this much needed cultivation practice.

Aerating in November

This schedule is completely dependent on weather.  Because this process will be done so late in the season, there are no make-up dates scheduled.  If it is too wet, we will not do any of the scheduled activities.  We will monitor greens throughout the winter and punch small holes as needed if nothing is completed in November.  The next scheduled aeration will then occur during the week of March 11, 2013.  Additionally, tree work will occur throughout the golf course with the emphasis of pruning many of our prominent oak trees.  Two trees will be cut and removed.  One monterey pine in the 17th rough and one cypress nearest the 6th green.

  1. Hi Paul, played couple weeks back, course was in great shape, loved it, similar type grasses, we’re bent/poa greens, bent fairways, rye/bluegrass rough. I understand core aerification and it’s benefits as I worked in the industry for a decade,,,, but am thankful I missed it. Do you usually do your aerifying in November versus October which seems to be when a lot of courses do it, even back home. Just wondering as we visit from Canada and are in the area during October and I’m already looking forward to playing again next year……pls keep to your November sched…lol
