Spike and Seed

Last Friday afternoon the greens covers were pulled off to the side so the crew could Spike and Seed the greens and apply our first fungicide app for Fairy Ring.  As the pictures show, seed is germinating but we need to get more growth in between the aerification holes that were punched in early April.  The Spike and Seeder was used on 1,4,8 and 10 green surfaces and to ensure more seed per green, we went 2 x on each green.  The front of 4 green will remain uncovered, we will be hex plugging the bad area on the front of the green later this week.  Hex plugging is a slow process but we have seen a quicker healing time compared to sodding, as seen on the back left of 5 green.
