Our greens at Blue Mash Golf Course roll very true after aeration because we use small tines to pull the cores. The holes are about the width of a number 2 pencil ¼". This makes for a very forgiving putting surface. We understand the frustration that golfers have with this annoying practice performed twice a year, and on some golf courses three or even four times a year. We appreciate your support. Just so our golfing community knows private Country Clubs, semiprivate golf courses and public golf courses all take a hit or a loss in the revenue department during aeration. That being said if it were not such a critical part of the overall health of the turfgrass on (greens, tees, fairways and rough) then golf courses would not gamble with their revenue several times a year.
One observation I have noticed over the past twenty years in the golf course industry is that golfers today are much more well-informed about aeration and the reasons why we have to do it. In fact it's not uncommon to be approached by customers on the golf course asking when we are planning to aerate greens, tees and fairways, because they want to aerate their home lawn around the same time. I think it's neat that they are into the cultural practices that golf course superintendent's practice to improve the golf course and take that knowledge home to improve their lawns. But I recognize that we are not all "turf geeks" so we at Blue Mash thought that some of the golfers that don't really understand why golf courses aerate might get something out of this demonstration video, and don't worry our greens are rolling great, come see for yourself.
