The place to get a behind-the-scenes look at grounds maintenance at Bailey Ranch Golf Club

Yesterday the agronomy staff began core aeration of the front nine tee boxes. This process uses our Soil Reliever aerator with 3/4" hollow tines. Once the aerator is finished with a tee box, the cores are left to dry for a few minutes before the metal drag mat is used to break them up. Breaking up the cores separates the soil from the thatch so it can be reincorporated into the canopy. Then the tee box is blown off and mowed. All the front nine tee boxes were completed yesterday. The remaining tee boxes will be finished on next Tuesday when we are closed. We appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
