|HFCC's new Verticutter|
|Deep verticutting on the #1 fairway.|
Ever since implementing our fairway verticutting program about 5 years ago, the turf has steadily improved year after year. We recently finished deep verticutting the fairways and due to the continued rain, have been cleaning up ever since. Verticutting creates an excessive amount of organic matter that needs to be cleaned up afterwards. Normally, we blow the material in the rough and mow it several times turning it into mulch. However, the rains have hampered our ability to blow the material and in many areas we have had to clean the material up by hand. While the clean-up is taking longer than desired, the benefits far outweigh the extra effort.
