Winter Preparations II - Aerification

As a part of getting the golf courses ready for winter, this past week we aerified all of the South greens and a few of the winter susceptible North greens.

Aerifying this late in the year results in the holes remaining open all winter. These open holes allow for better surface drainage when the snow and ice melts. It also allows for ice to form inside the open channels, causing an expansion of the soils surrounding the hole and providing another form of soil aeration.
