Greens Cultural Management Practices Schedule

The fall is a great time to perform a number of necessary cultural practices. Our goal is to amend the upper portion of the greens surface with enough sand to help insulate the crown through the winter as well as removing and diluting organic matter. Below you will find a schedule of cultural practices that we aim to complete before the covers go on and the snow flies!!!

Wednesday, Sept. 30th- Light topdressing followed by a Cocoa matt
Tuesday, Wednesday October 13/14-Course Closure full core aeration with heavy topdressing.
October 19th- Light topdressing followed by a Cocoa matt
October 26th- Light topdressing followed by a Cocoa matt
November 2nd- Light topdressing followed by a Cocoa matt
November 9th- Deep Verticut, followed by a sufficient topdressing.
November 16th- Post Course Closure, Heavy topdressing followed by Deep tine aeration.
Of course this is all in hope that the weather cooperates...happy fall!
