Quad tine aeration on the chipping green

This week the greens were aerated with hollow core quad tines. These are the same tines that were used in the spring. This type of greens aeration has a minimal impact on play due to the small holes that are created. The smaller holes should be completely healed within 7 days from the time the aeration was performed. Check out the video below to see how the greens aeration was accomplished. The greens are rolling pretty well (see the clip at the end of the video). In fact, all the feedback I have received about the condition of the greens this week has been positive.

The high temperature in the valley is supposed to be around 100 degrees tomorrow. It's only supposed to reach the mid 70's in Florence, so it is a great time to beat the heat and enjoy a round of golf at Sandpines. We look forward to seeing you.

On Thursday, there were 3 bucks roaming around the course. I thought you might enjoy checking them out, so I captured the short video below.
