GOLF TIPS

The Can't-Miss Putting Grip

ORLANDO AREA MAINTENANCE SCHEDULES

Just when greens are at their best the aerification or overseeding process begins. A necessary evil to maintain healthy putting surfaces, the average healing time for aerification is about 14-21 days, some courses heal faster than others depending on the type of grass involved. Most courses will aerify 2-3 times between late April/early May  then again in the late summer.

Overseeding may or may not include the greens depending on the type of grass used. Look for wet conditions and cart path only for 10-20 days. Greens can also be slower as the seed takes hold. These dates are always subject to change based on weather conditions. We will update this chart as changes occur to keep you informed.

Aerification = * small tynes, less effect on putting.  ** Dry Jet process leaves no holes, just light top dress. *** venting means very small holes, light topdress minimal effect on putting.                                                                       Overseeding =  not all courses listed here overseed tees, fairways, and greens.  Also not all of these courses will be cart path only after seeding. Not scheduled means they do not plan on overseeding or the date has not been selected as yet. We would recommend calling the course for any possible restrictions before booking.
