Why Do Golf Courses Punch Greens?

It's never a great moment to arrive at the golf course to find out the greens have been punched and sanded. A practice know as aerification. This is an important practice of golf course maintenance and the reason is to promote oxygen to the soil and the grass. Turfgrass shares this with humans - we need to breath. On Monday April 27th the front 9 at Tri Mountain will be aerified and on Tuesday April 28th the back 9 will be aerified. Weather affects not only the aerifcation process but also the healing. This practice is a lot of work and puts pressure on the facility to get the greens back in shape quickly. Tri Mountain will blog updates on our conditions during this process.
