Fairway Seeding

The past aeration went very well and the greens are healing up ahead of schedule.  We slit seeded #1 and #9 fairway during aeration and the results are very positive.  We accumulated another .5" of rain over the weekend and the forecast looks like we are going to get another rain event Friday and Saturday.

We have decided to move forward and slit seed the rest of the fairways.  We are optimistic with a few long days most of the fairways will be completed this week.  The process will involve slit seeding, top-dressing, dragging and fertilizing the remaining fairways.  We believe with favorable weather over the next 14 days this process will fill in many areas void of turf and improve playability through the winter.  We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this process may cause.
