Cowan Creek Aerification

This Monday we aerified the greens at Cowan Creek with a 5/8" tine on 1.5" centers and went down to a depth of 4". The amount of organic matter in the greens has been one of the contributing factors in the health of the greens this spring at Cowan Creek and with this aerification it should give us approximately 13.64% of organic matter displacement throughout the green. We are following behind the aerification with a 1 ton roller to help smooth the greens out from this aggressive aerification. Per the USGA's recommendations we will do this up to three more times this growing season.
