The Fairway Aerification Process


 
This is what the 17th faiway looked like just after Dan aerified it.
 
This is John dragging the plugs with a drag mat on 16.  He drags the plugs 3 or 4 times to break them up.
 
Here is a close up of the drag, it really works great and was specifically designed to perform this task.
  
Sidebar: This is Scott and he has been with me for 12 years.  He mows the rough about 36 hours every week.

 

This is Tyler and he is blowing the remaining thatch off of the 15th fairway.  The final process is sweeping up the thatch in the rough.

Another shot of the thatch after dragging.

A close up of the plugs broken up, just the thatch.
