Over 18 MILLION new holes were created in the putting greens relieving the compaction from the past year, removing a years worth of thatch growth, and providing channels for new, stronger plants and roots to develop.
4 acres of teeing surfaces were solid tine aerified
10 acres of tee and green surrounds were scalped down for better play
32 acres of fairways were sliced with our Aerway shattertine aerifier to improve fairway health.
Around 150 tons of sand were applied to the golf course turf including greens, tees, and greens surrounds to help firm up the playing surfaces, fill in aerification holes, and provide a smoother playing surface.
and many other smaller activities.
Our golf course has made considerable improvements over the years and it is all due to the hard work and dedication of the agronomy staff. I would be remise if I did not recognize and commend these individuals for their commitment to the betterment of Harrison Bay.
Thank you to each member of our agronomy staff for making The Bear Trace at Harrison Bay all it can be, not only this week, but every week.
