KEEPING UP ALL THE GOOD WORK Classic Club plans summer closure for aerification and maintenance projects I t takes a lot of hard work to maintain the pristine playing conditions golfers experience at Classic Club. And the time is drawing near when a big part of that work will be taking place. With that in mind, the golf course is set to close from July 11-September 1 for summer aerification and additional maintenance work. During this time, the agronomy team will be aerifying all surfaces, including greens, tees, fairways and roughs. "Summer aerification is crucial to year-round conditions being the best they can be," said Director of Agronomy Tony Spannaus. Aerification allows trapped gasses in the soil to escape and oxygen to get in, he said. It also allows for better water infiltration into the soil and promotes new root growth, increasing the surface area of fresh root hairs. "All this allows the Bermuda base to be healthier and stronger year-around, which in turn leads to a better overseed of our winter rye grass," Spannaus said, adding that the course will be ready to go when it reopens on September 2 with no cart path restrictions. The course will definitely look spruced up, too, as the team will be enhancing landscaping areas with new bark mulch, plants and flowers. CLICK HERE TO BOOK TEE TIMES AT CL ASSIC CLUB THE COURSE
