Fairway maintenance today

Today we used our scheduled Greens Maintenance Day to Aer-a-vate the fairways. This is a vibrating spiker that will help improve water infiltration and alleviate compaction which will be very important as we head into the heat of the summer.
The turf is full of holes today, but the disruption will be minor after we mow them tomorrow. By the weekend I doubt there will be any evidence of the procedure.
