Today we started the first aerification of the greens in 2011. We consider this our "official" start of the season. We had a very successful day especially since the forecasted rain held off and we actually saw a good bit of sunshine.
A few quick facts for the day. In 12 hours we aerified 110,000sqft, punched 2,160,000 holes, and applied 40 tons of sand. Tomorrow we will begin to blow all of the extra sand, making sure that all the holes are completely filled, and begin our application of amendments.
