Hangin' Up The Hoses?

As September rolls in, fingers crossed, our maintenance staff gets to breath a sigh of relief. It appears that the summer heat is behind us. All things considered it was not too brutal of a summer. The second core aerification of the putting greens was completed on August 19th. Fall is just around the corner which means it's time to hang up the hoses, let the course heal from summer stress and hopefully relax a little.
2.5" of rain the weekend leading up to aerification led to messy core harvesting
The majority of the cores had to be blown off of the greens
