Twice a year (once in late March and once in early October) our maintenance staff punches and sands all of our greens. While this is a short-term inconvenience for players, it is absolutely essential for the health of our putting greens. Aerification is the mechanical removal of soil cores. Aerification relieves soil compaction, improving water and air movement into the soil, increasing rooting, and greatly improving turf grass health. Additionally, aerification will also reduce thatch.
Think of it as a necessary evil, and one of the reasons that we are privileged to enjoy some of the finest putting surfaces in the Northwest!
