We have already done these cultural practices on the red nine while it was closed. We will begin aerifying the white greens next Monday, September the 17th followed by aerfiying the blue greens on September 24th.
The red greens have ben aerified
The greens are then rolled to smooth the surface
The renovation of red greens #3 and #9 is very well. It is on time and within budget !!!! Drainage installation, irrigation installation, bunker construction and all rootzone mix and materials have been completed on #3 green. We will be "floating out" or smoothing the surface in preparation for seeding early next week. The green will be larger in size, framed by bunkers on the right - left-and back of the green, with a generous opening in the front for approach shots. The greens is larger and much less sloping than before.
The photo below shows what the drainage system looks like under a USGA green. This system aids in carrying water away from the rootzone of the green. Greens dry out quicker resulting in superior putting speeds.

The work on #9 green is well under way. The drainage has been installed. Gravel and rootzone mixture are already being added to the cavity of the green complex. The green is now almost 7,000 square feet in size with an open approach to the green. I think you will find it very fair and enjoyable. Hopefully we will have the #9 green seeded by the end of next week.
