It’s that time of year! Golf courses around the country are aerating their greens, fairways, and tee boxes, in order to improve course conditions. We get a lot of questions as to why we have to disrupt play with aerification twice a year. Believe us, we don’t want to shut down play and tear up our course, but the benefits of aerification significantly outweigh the short-term disruption of play.

Aeration consists of pulling small ‘cores’ of soil from the ground to allow the release of moisture and promote gas exchange in the soil. This strengthens the roots and increases oxygen levels in the soil, which creates a healthier, smoother, and firmer playing surface.

We understand that it creates a rougher playing and putting surface for a short period of time, and we apologize for that inconvenience. However, keep in mind that it will create even better playing conditions for future visits. We thank you for your patience and hope you enjoy your round!
