Aeration and Course Updates

The greens at Country Club of Miami Golf are not scheduled to be aerated in the near future, dates will be made available as they arise:

  • The East Course and West Course are open. Please contact the Pro Shop for conditions.

Please note, this schedule is subject to change. Contact us to confirm dates of aeration. We understand that this process may be frustrating for the golfer, but it is necessary to maintain healthy turf grass.

Why do we aerate greens?

Aeration alleviates soil compaction and the build up of organic matter under the root bed by creating more air space in the soil profile. This is achieved with machines that produce holes in the soil and remove cores. Aeration allows water and essential nutrients to more effectively pass through to the root system which promotes deeper root growth and healthy turf grass.

This video from the United States Golf Association (USGA) explains the process and reasons why aeration is necessary.
