The Quail Dunes Golf Course in Fort Morgan will be closed to all gaming operations on Monday, August 9th, as the course maintenance staff will aerate the course in the fall, according to a city press release.
Aeration is the process of punching holes in the lawn and pulling out the cores to allow air, water, and other nutrients to penetrate deeper into the soil. It is a two day process and requires a full completion of the course for one day.
Aeration will begin on Monday August 9th and crews will go as far as possible that day to shorten the window of time required to complete the project on Tuesday August 10th.
As with previous aeration, the Quail Dunes Driving Range will be open non-stop, with Front 9 expected to be available for play until Tuesday morning.
The aeration usually takes place twice a year and is important for maintaining optimal space.
“While the greens held up well during the recent heat wave, the ups and downs of the summer season and heavy rains have definitely taken their toll, and aeration will come at the perfect time from a maintenance standpoint,” said Golf and Cemetery Superintendent Matt Unterholz.
