We want to inform you that during 4th and 5th of June we have aerated the greens therefore, during the next two weeks the greens will not be 100%. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
This is a very important maintenance job that we must carry out once a year to guarantee the quality of the greens.
The greens on a golf course continually suffer from the weight of the player’s footprints, the weight of the machinery used and the impact from balls that hit the ground. Performing this task helps us to improve the appearance and to solve any defects and irregularities. All these external aggressions compact the soil and makes the surface compress which causes both water and air to remain in superficial layers on the top and not reach any deeper to the roots of the grass. It´s important to perform this spiking before the arrival of the high summer temperatures.
