One of those "aha" moments!

This is one of those “aha!” moments!  Today we are needle tining the greens to allow for gas exchange, better water infiltration, and reduce compaction.  This practice prevents the accumulation of toxic gases that can lead to a decline in turf quality during peak summer months.   We are able to complete this practice in one day with minimal disruption to golfers.
