The place to get a behind-the-scenes look at grounds maintenance at Bailey Ranch Golf Club
Tuesday, April 29, 2014
This week, the staff is decompacting tee boxes using the Aerway shattertine machine. This is the same unit we used on fairways a few weeks ago. The shattertines torque as they go into the ground which helps loosen and fracture the soil. The tees are then mowed to clean up the tufts left behind. Doug, our chemical applicator, is following the slicing project with an organic fertilizer to encourage some more growth. Once the weather starts cooperating and begins to warm up, the tee boxes should start to fill in quickly.
