It’s Time for Fall Aerification at Kissing Camels Golf Course
Despite having suffered through a natural wildfire, record drought, and brutal heat here in Colorado Springs, our golf course–Kissing Camels at Garden of the Gods Club–has continued to look and play great all season long. As we transition into the cooler months of autumn, it is once again time to think about golf course aerification. In order to extend these superb golf course conditions into the fall, while also making an instant agronomic impact, we choose to minimize surface disruption and quicken healing time of the greens by using solid tines rather than hollow.
Greens will be deep-tine aerified using a ¾”solid tine at a depth of 10”. This machine drives the tine into the green while lifting and fracturing the green profile on its way up, further insuring internal drainage, oxygen exchange and reducing compaction caused by traffic throughout the season. Tees and fairways will also receive an aerification this fall by way solid tine coring this week.
The luxury of having 27 golf holes at Kissing Camels affords us 18 holes open for golf while we go through this process, so be sure to come out and enjoy these great fall conditions this week on the golf course. There’s no better place to be in the fall than on the golf course; it’s one of my favorite places on earth. Have a great fall season, we’ll see you out there!
