We finished up aerating all 19 greens in 2 days. We really had great weather this week and the final product really shows. I think with some warm days and fertilizer, we should have the greens healed in going into winter.

Today we celebrated Socorro's 66th birthday. Coco as we like to call him, came to work with us this spring. He brings lots of energy and smiles every day he comes to work. Prior to working here, he was with course crafters, a golf course construction company. Happy b-day coco!

It's that time of year, the time that we get to poke millions of holes in your golf course. It's a necessary evil. Aerating helps reduce compaction, thatch, and get oxygen to the roots. This week we are aerating and topdressing the tees. This will be followed up with a fertilizer to help recovery. The week of October 28 we will close nine holes each day and do the same process to the greens. Hopefully with a little warm weather we can get some recovery on the greens going into winter. The entire month of November will be devoted to the fairways. This is a slow process and requires a lot of cleanup. Below are some pics of the tees that were aerated yesterday .
