The place to get a behind-the-scenes look at grounds maintenance at Bailey Ranch Golf Club
Friday, June 3, 2011
The turf team has been in high gear over the last few days aerating greens. We felt that an additional core aeration was needed to ensure that we have the drainage capacity and strong root systems to handle another hot and humid summer. Smaller tines were used to minimize the time required to heal in. The larger particles of sand that didn't work into the holes were blown off to keep the greens rolling as smooth as possible. Overall, the greens came out of the process really well and we should be back in great shape in just a few days. The last picture is two days after the cores were pulled.
