Course Aerification Closure Dates

It’s that time of year!

With every fall comes the aerification of the greens on the golf courses. It is hard to see our perfectly mowed greens put through this process. Aerification is merely a short-term disruption that has long-term benefits for golf coursesWhen you see them, remember that without those little holes, the greens would eventually die.

Preventative maintenance is an integral part of successful golf course management. Golfers view aerification as an inconvenience that takes the greens out of play for a day, pulling cores from the greens and leaving holes that can affect putting for many days before healing.

But a golfer needs to understand how important aerification is to producing healthy turf. Aerification (also known as aeration) achieves three important objectives. It relieves soil compaction, it provides a method to improve the soil mixture around the highest part of a green’s roots and it reduces or prevents the accumulation of excess thatch.

Like so many things, the quality of a good putting green is more than skin deep. In fact, the condition of a green has a lot to do with what goes on below the surface. In order for grass to grow at 3/16-inch, it must have deep, healthy roots. Good roots demand oxygen. In good soil, they get the oxygen from tiny pockets of air trapped between soil and sand particles.

Over time, the traffic from golfers’ feet (as well as mowing equipment) tends to compact the soil under the putting green – particularly when the soil contains a lot of clay. When soil becomes compacted, the air pockets on which the roots depend are crushed, and the roots are essentially left gasping for air. Without oxygen, the grass plants become weaker and will eventually wither and die.

Next, we will start the aerification process at our courses. Below is the schedule.

*Note- All of the golf courses will be closed while the greens are being aerified.

  • Bakker Crossing – Monday, September 11th
  • Rocky Run – Wednesday, September 13th
  • Central Valley – Monday, September 18th
  • Willow Run – Wednesday and Thursday, October 4th and 5th
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we complete the aerification process.
Have a great day!
