Maderas Golf Club recently completed a Fairway Aerification Event. Aerification is one of the most important ingredients in a golf course maintenance program. This process includes, deep tining the fairways, coring the fairways and collection of the plugs. The final step of the process was to drag sand into the holes. The sand allows for a quicker recovery time.
Our maintenance team performed this important exercise with the goal of improving airflow. Improved airflow leads to better rooting, which in turn leads to healthier fairways and a better golf experience. Come visit the course soon to see how this practice improves the playability, infiltration rates and percolation rates.
