MCG Graden - Fall 2019
In an ongoing effort to minimize the impact of essential cultivation practices on our greens, we are replacing traditional spring core aeration with a late fall vertical mowing/ sand injection program at most of our properties. Traditional spring aeration is often hampered by unpredictable weather patterns or prolonged winter weather and can result in additional course closures as well as slower healing of greens.
Eliminating spring aeration helps our superintendents be able to produce desirable putting surfaces faster coming out of winter. The aggressive fall vertical mowing will result in visible lines of sand on the greens, but our goal is to keep them lightly topdressed with sand and rolling smoother than core aeration. They should be mostly healed from this process for the 2020 golf season!
